Abstract

This paper describes the development of a computer simulation of the interactions between the acute and aged care systems in Australia, using system dynamics modeling enhanced by agent-based techniques. National and regional simulations will be developed, enabling the impact of a variety of policy scenarios to be forecast over the next 10 years. The paper includes a description of the relevant policy environment and some of the associated key policy issues.
