SIMTEGR8 for modelling health service operations

simtegr8-logoThe Research Centre of Service Management at Loughborough University, partnering with Healthwatch Leicestershire and Leicestershire County Council, were awarded an Enterprise Project Grant (EPG) worth £100,000 by the University’s Enterprise Office in‑kind support from the partners for this major study. The outcomes from this research project, led by Professor Stewart Robinson, are two: a simulation tool and handbooks. The work has previously demonstrated the use of SimLean methodology to model the patient journey through hospitals. This project builds on this in order to carry out an independent evaluation that directly impacts on the current and future health and wellbeing agenda across a number of domains. A website (simulator for health care integrator stakeholders) is up and running.
