FlexSim to participate in Boston-area simulation workshop
FlexSim’s Lou Keller will speak and present at the Healthcare Computer Simulation Workshop, scheduled to be held on September 9th and 10th at Northeastern University.
The workshop, organized by Dr. James C. Benneyan and Keller, is a free event open to the Boston-area healthcare community that will instruct decision makers within healthcare systems on the use of simulation models to make process decisions. The first day of the two-day event will focus on simulation uses, while the second day will a more in-depth look at simulation models and common software.
The workshop’s stated objectives are that attendees:
- Understand how to use simulation to make important healthcare decisions.
- Identify appropriate applications in health systems and the most useful simulation models.
- Gain experience in the basic steps to developing and conducting an effective simulation study.
Dr. Benneyan is a professor at Northeastern and is the Director of the Healthcare Systems Engineering Institute at the university. He is a nationally-recognized expert in the application of systems engineering to improve healthcare. Lou Keller has over 45 years of healthcare management experience, with 25 years in healthcare systems simulation.
