Abstract

We are at a point in time where healthcare (in USA) is getting more attention from law makers, government agencies, doctors, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, and population at large. The costs for healthcare have been steadily growing. The healthcare system offers challenging and interesting opportunities for operations researchers from both theoretical and practical points of view. This paper is an attempt to use simulation as a tool to study a healthcare system at a macroscopic level.
