A Design Pattern For Modelling And Simulation In Hospital Pharmacy Management

  title={A Design Pattern For Modelling And Simulation In Hospital Pharmacy Management},
  author={Wirachchaya Chanpuypetch and Duangpun Kritchanchai},
Nowadays, several Thai hospitals are still suffering from inefficient processes. Redesigning business processes is an effective way for improvement. However, business process mapping and analysis in healthcare environment has become a complex task. Besides, most healthcare professionals often resist change. To deal with these obstacles, a design pattern useful for modelling and simulation is suggested in this paper. For deriving patterns in this study, current problems focusing on hospital…
