Simcad Pro Health - Simulation Benefits in Healthcare

Healthcare Simulation Software

Simcad Pro Health, provides simulation and modeling solutions for all the elements of your healthcare setting. Test the impact of process improvement ideas in a virtual environment, without the risk of implementing unproven ideas to the actual patient flow.


Prove out and validate improvements to the ED, OR Department, Radiology, labs, bed allocation and internal supply chain and play the “what-if” game- analyze scenarios, and identify changes to determine both the ROI and best path forward prior to spending time, money, and limited resources on untested changes. Simulation provides both 2D and 3D animations to convey ideas, while detailed analytics and value stream mapping generate the required ROI calculation for each improvement.
