Attention Wizard: Week 9
Please pay attention to the questions and instruction.
Week 9 Discussion: Simulation for a performance improvement.
Week 9 Assignment: Simulation in Health care. (Excel) Please provide space for Name.Week 9: Data-Driven Decision Making for Health care Administration
How might healthcare administration leaders use analytic techniques, such as simulation, to enhance healthcare delivery? What information should be used when adopting simulation strategies for healthcare administration practice?
The world of health care is not stagnant. In fact, it can seem more like a gray haze, wherein uncertainties; constraints for time and resources; and no single set of rules demand extreme attention and execution for the well-being of the patient population. Thus, when something unexpected occurs, how do health services organizations and healthcare administration leaders plan for, and execute, effective healthcare delivery?
With ongoing simulation techniques, practice, and analytics for informing healthcare delivery, healthcare administration leaders can execute and command effective decision making.
1. This week, you explore simulation techniques for healthcare administration practice. You consider how simulation may be used in health services organizations and apply simulation techniques to address healthcare administration problems.
· Analyze how simulation might be used in health services organizations
· Apply simulation techniques to healthcare administration practice

Simulation for Performance Improvement
As you have examined this week, simulation as an analytic tool can assist healthcare administration leaders execute important improvement initiatives. Simulations can be used to determine the impact of hospital outbreaks, shortages in staff, potential disaster events, or even financial challenges that might impact healthcare delivery for a health services organization. As a current or future healthcare administration leader, the ability to use simulation as an analytic technique will help you execute sound decision making to tackle healthcare administration challenges.
1. For this Discussion, review the resources for this week, and consider those issues that might most affect healthcare adminis
