Paper Title
Modeling Patient Transfer from Existing to Replacement Hospital: A Simulation Study
  Balagopal Gopakumar,  Joshua Bosire

The number of new hospitals being built in the USA is expected to increase over the next few years. As organizations open these new facilities they will be required to develop plans for moving patients from the existing facilities to the new facilities. We propose a simulation-based approach to model, evaluate, and plan the patient transfer process. In this paper, we present use of the simulation model to transfer of patients to a new, replacement facility in May 2011. Simulation determined the patient transfer process could be completed in six hours, given the organization’s resources. The model allowed us to identify bottlenecks in the patient transfer process prior to the actual move, to validate outcomes, and to determine if the move process met the organization’s goals.

Keywords- discrete event simulation (DES); hospital transition planning; patient flow
