A computer model for the Emergency Department (ED) is built to provide insights on the causes of the variability of wait times. Point-of-Care (PoC) technologies are proposed to expand the model. PoC technologies can provide real-time capabilities to the model, which support the decision process in the management of the ED. Enhancing ED management can translate in reduced wait times for better patient care outcomes.
