Healthcare Decision-Support by Hybrid Simulation – Mobile Stroke Units


Healthcare Decision-Support by Hybrid Simulation – Mobile Stroke Units

The University of Erlangen-Nuremburg Computer Networks and Communication Systems group specializes in the simulation of large-scaled complex systems such as healthcare, automotive, industry and energy. One of the latest projects concerned the possibility and location of Mobile Stroke Units (MSU’s) due to the increase of stroke victims in an aging population. A stroke is typically caused by Thrombosis and should be treated with thrombolysis. Stroke causes severe disability and produces high costs for care and rehab if not treated quickly.

AnyLogic North America Attends Agent-Based Modeling Bootcamp for Health Researchers


AnyLogic North America was to take part in Dr. Nate Osgood’s 3rd Annual Agent-Based Modeling Bootcamp for Health Researchers last week at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, SK, Canada. Dr. Osgood’s platform of choice is AnyLogic for many reasons, not least the graphical nature of the editor, the excellent support offered by The AnyLogic Company, and the software’s multimethod capabilities. The bootcamp was attended by roughly 25 people, most of them academicians, with a high proportion of them interested in epidemiology. However, according to Dr. Osgood, a large proportion of attendees indicated that multimethod modeling was an item of high interest to them, and he adjusted the course content accordingly.

Full Screencast Available: Healthcare Dynamic Modeling Workshop & Training


We have a new video available on our website. It is complete screencast of Healthcare Dynamic Modeling Workshop & Training that took place in Sydney this February. The instructors were Nathaniel Osgood (University of Saskatchewan), Geoff McDonnell (University of New South Wales, Australia), and Andrei Borshchev (CEO at the AnyLogic Company).

Healthcare Dynamic Modeling Workshop & Training in Sydney

Dynamic Modeling Workshop & Training took place on 18-22 February 2013 at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Sydney. Healthcare was the main field of simulation modeling application discussed there. The workshop’s target audience was simulation modeling specialists, researchers, practitioners and policy makers who wanted to advance their knowledge in dynamic modeling methods and see some examples of their use. 42 people attended the event.
