Reflections on healthcare applications of hybrid simulation modelling in the UK and Norway


The combination or mixing of methods in Operational Research (OR) is not new. The argument for combing OR methods is that as each has different strengths and weaknesses, and mixing methods offers the potential to overcome some of the drawbacks of using a single approach. Hybrid simulation (HS), defined as a modelling approach that combines two or more of the following methods: discrete-event simulation (DES), system dynamics (SD), and agent-based simulation (ABS), follows the same rationale for combining or mixing OR methods. It has been argued that HS are better suited to capture the complexity of systems that need to be better understood or improved. The use of HS and number of HS publications have increased over the last 20 years. The main HS application areas are healthcare, supply chain management and manufacturing, and most published models combine discrete-event simulation and system dynamics. I will introduce and reflect on three health related HS models 1) a DES-SD HS model of Chlamydia transmission and treatment in a UK county to assess effectiveness of screening programs, 2) a DES-SD-ABM HS model of age related macular degeneration, to understand and illustrate the implication to and interactions between the social care and health care systems in a UK county and, 3) a DES-ABM HS model to improve the operation of a post-term pregnancy outpatient clinic in a Norwegian hospital.
