Exploring how Medical Learning Networks can be Improved


Cincinnati Children’s Hospital


Cincinnati Children’s Hospital is creating learning networks. Each learning networkis focused on one medical condition, and includes patients suffering from that condition,and clinicians treating them. Learning networks have been shown to improve medicaltreatments, but it is not yet clear the best way to design them.


An agent-based simulation of a learning network, modeling patients, clinicians, theirinteractions, and their learning. The simulation allows learning network designers to experimentwith different policies.
