    The Affordable Care Act is putting increasing levels of pressure on a healthcare system which was already strained. Considering this new reality how do hospital and clinic decision makers best evaluate their current systems and future plans in order to comply with the ACA yet continue to meet patient care standards as well as community and financial performance objectives?”

    The MedModel Methodology


    Create a dynamic, animated computer model of your clinical environment from CAD files, process or value stream maps, or Process Simulator models. Clearly see and understand current clinical processes in action. Watch your proposed changes run within the model to gain a better understanding of their effects in a specific clinical area or via a higher level patient flow/bed management environment.


    Brainstorm using the model to identify potential changes and develop scenarios in order to test improvements which will achieve operational and clinical objectives to quickly improve the delivery of care within your institution. Evaluate your current operations or design a new one in a risk free simulated environment. Understand real-life system behavior with all the variability and interdependencies of an actual healthcare facility. Analytical output reports and charts are automatically generated to verify improvements in the delivery of care through objective, statistical methods long before money and staff time are spent in implementation.


    Determine the most effective course of action based on scenarios developed in the analyze phase. Choose the optimal scenario to implement into your facility, resolving issues such as:

    • Patient Flow
    • Bed Management
    • Facility Design
    • Low Productivity
    • Transition Planning
    • Future Staffing Requirements
    • Equipment Planning
    • Logistical Analysis
    • Emergency Preparedness
    • Planning for Future Changes

    The MedModel Advantage

    MedModel provides administrators and managers the opportunity to test new ideas for system design or improvement in the delivery of care before committing the time and resources necessary to build or alter the actual system.

    MedModel focuses on issues such as:

    • Resource Utilization
    • System Capacity
    • Patient Flow within a specific clinical area
    • Patient Flow throughout the hospital
    • Constraints for rapidly changing patient demographics.

    By modeling the important elements of a hospital or clinic, healthcare leaders can experiment with different operating strategies and designs to achieve the best results for their patients.

    What's New




      MedModel 10.12.224 (July 2022)


      Enhancements and Improvements

      • Licensing now uses MS web edge view 2 runtime. This removes dependance of IE.
      • Addressed Shift Carryover issues with Load Perm - improvements with recapture in some load perm situations were made to the engine.
      • Removed error message about “square root of a negative number” related to conveyors.
      • Resolved issue with Distance Traveled() - if the resource unit valued was less than what you entered for the function, you would see a misleading error message.


      ProModel AutoCAD® Edition

      (Requires additional subscription license)

      ProModel AutoCAD Edition now allows the user to build and simulate directly in AutoCAD 2020, 2021, 2022, and 2023 - leveraging Factory Design Utilities.

      Enhancements and Improvements

      • Vault is now supported with ProModel AutoCAD Edition. - The simulation can now take advantage of the versioning and revisioning controls of Autodesk’s Vault. This has been tested with 2021, 2022, and 2023 editions.
      • Added ability to choose to keep a resource in setup downtimes for a location.
      • When you create a new flow with a new entity name, a default graphic is given to the Entity if it did not previously have one assigned.
      • Improvements made to the AutoCAD launcher; subsequently it has been move to the “Contents” folder.
      • Improved ability to use elements added to a simulation from ProModel Professional (i.e. if you reference an array in ACAD that you created in ProModel, once you have simulated once, you will not see errors regarding the name or usage within AutoCAD.)
      • Right clicking on a shift file assignment will now allow the user to open the file.



      MedModel 10.11.197 (May 2022)


      Enhancements and Improvements

      • Critical update for issues related to Time Series data collection. We have resolved issues where time series data was being corrupted.


      ProModel AutoCAD® Edition

      (Requires additional subscription license)
