Using System Dynamics to Model Health and Social Care Integration Policy Based on Risk Stratification Tools
Risk Stratification tools are widely used in healthcare internationally to summarise the needs of a population and target services / interventions, often with a preventive intention, such as to reduce emergency hospital bed-use. In this example, a local authority, working with NHS partners, used modelling to explore why a case-management service based on a commonly-used tool (Patients at Risk of Rehospitalisation – PARR) appeared to have a disappointing impact. Whilst risk stratification can be viewed as an application of Big Data, focusing on Stock measurements, the insights added by System Dynamics showed the importance of understanding Flow, in the form of the underlying churn of people between risk groups. Within the context of policy-modelling, this approach can be considered to be an application of Dynamic Impact Analysis.
Followed by information about the 2016 conference.
And some regulations:
Everybody has to be registered beforehand as the reception in the ground level needs to have a list of attendees at least two days before the event. There is no chance that somebody can enter if he/she just comes without being in the list.
There will be an X-Ray machine in the ground floor reception and all visitors will need to have their coats and bags scanned.
It is important that all guests bring some form of ID.
It is important to register your attendance by clicking here by December 14th.
