Healthcare Systems and Modelling

Systems analysis and modelling have been effective in a wide range of manufacturing and service industries. Through a series of research projects, we have explored the potential for transferring this experience into healthcare management. Systems analysis and modelling have a great relevance in efficiently organising resources to deliver more effective healthcare. However, the techniques often require some adaptation for healthcare reflecting the variety of stakeholders and the strong emphasis on patient-centred care.
