AbstractThe big data in Accident and Emergency services in hospitals worth being analyzed to provide clinical decision support to clinicians and medical information to patients. System Dynamics modelling is a technique used for modelling complex behaviors of organizational and social systems. In this study, a system dynamics approach is used to model the patient flow in Accident and Emergency in Hong Kong. The study aims to examine the trade-offs of various safety and quality outcomes in an Emergency Department: waiting time and occupancy (acute beds and waiting room) in primary, on the adjustments of various factors (e.g. Admission volumes and staff numbers) in order to evaluate how an accident and emergency system in Hong Kong could be more efficiently operated.
