Concept Map for Healthcare M&S
Hers's a concept map that I built specifically to demonstrate where - at very high levels - modeling and simulation can be used or are being used within the comprehensive healthcare domain.
I originally built this to demonstrate to healthcare educators and trainers that simulation and modeling are related, and that there are use domains outside of their area of focus.
Modeling and simulation helps us to better understand systems, when used correctly. I can think of very few systems that are more complex than healthcare - and that demand a level of understanding and analysis that can likely only come from a comprehensive analytical and system model.
