Abstract

The literature suggests that increasing stakeholder engagement in modelling has a positive impact on healthcare improvement projects using discrete-event simulation (DES). This suggests analysts should strive for the ‘fully-facilitated’ mode of simulation, meaning conducting the whole simulation project together with stakeholders. This paper investigates whether this might be possible in practice. This work arose from a research project with an Italian hospital. The paper describes a simulation project that succeeds in being fully-facilitated through all stages as far as the implementation stage, through combining Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) and DES. We believe it is the first time that a fully-facilitated DES project in healthcare has been described.
