Challenge: Our client wanted to raise awareness of the benefits and uses of Whole System Modelling and Simulation within the region.
Solution: Park Street Consulting organised a one-day conference comprising presentations by leading industry suppliers of modelling software, consultancy and training, and clinicians and academics with practical experience of modelling and simulation.
Outcome: Over 50 people attended the event and included a mixture of clinical and non-clinical staff from Acute Trusts, Mental Health Trusts, Clinical Commissioning Groups, Councils, Academic Health Science Centres and Public Health England.
It was judged to be highly successful and generated significant interest in using modelling and simulation. The client is now working with partners to create a modelling and simulation community and apply the techniques to improve services and reduce costs.
