FlexSim Healthcare 4.3.4 due for release today

The latest version of FlexSim Healthcare (4.3.4) is due to be released this afternoon and will primarily address bug fixes while adding a few new minor enhancements and features.

Bar charts and box plots are now able to support negative numbers, a useful addition that resulted from a user’s model. In the model, this person was attempting to track variance between patients arriving early or late to their appointment times; the bar chart needed to support negative numbers in order to show patients arriving before their appointment time. The finished product, using the new

Well, except for one.

Hidden in the release notes for version 4.0.4, buried beneath 16 other new features, is a single line announcing the addition of one of the most requested features for FlexSim HC: “Added Dot Plots to any metric that can display bar charts.

Re-addition would actually be more accurate. Dot plots existed in early versions, but were

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.
