This paper is an introduction to discrete event simulation for modeling the operations of healthcare systems. It begins with a brief discussion on the use of simulation to model various areas of healthcare systems. These models were developed to support decision making, to gain a better understanding of the operations of these systems, or to determine how… CONTINUE READING
