What is a Hospital Digital Twin? A digital twin represents a true virtual replica of the real word operation. From a hospital perspective, a digital twin provides a complete representation of the hospital activities, processes and their interactions. A Hospital Digital Twin incorporates all of the hospital operations from emergency services, departments, labs, supply chain and outpatient services, all working together to provide a valid and true representation of the hospital flows and interactions.
Hospital Digital Twin models exhibit the same behavior and constraints as the real world hospital. The most effective hospital digital twin models are the data driven ones. A Data Driven digital twin provides the additional capability to consume actual data from EMR, RTLS, and other system and combine that into a one cohesive representation of the hospital operation. Data Driven hospital digital twins have the ability to perform true, real-time, predictive analytics using current state data while constantly learning the operational constraints.
