Health Care System Dynamics Insights

Post by Gene Bellinger » Wed Jun 29, 2011 4:19 am

Mark Heffernan and Geoff McDonnell have collected system dynamics insights over the past two decades. We believe that often more can be gained by ‘zooming out’ on a problem and expanding the boundary of analysis, focusing on interactions with the wider context rather than the internal details of a part of the system. These insights are progressively built up to show health care practitioners and researchers how structure determines behavior. The insights are then used to perform ‘in silico’ virtual experiments as a way to learn more rigorously about complex interventions in complex systems.

These insights are being added to a new Health Care section of SystemsWiki.org at http://bit.ly/gvyyM0
