  • Deployment Strategy Evaluation

  • Historically, paramedic services have not been able to quantitatively analyze their deployment strategies and response capabilities. The development of resource deployment plans have been a "best guess" based on experience and intuition as well as political pressure from municipal councils. To address this issue, CAE's Integrated Enterprise Solutions group, in collaboration with its partners, has developed a simulation-based analysis capability for evaluating deployment strategies and resourcing issues.

    To analyze different deployment strategies, simulated scenarios based on historical call and roster data are generated to analyze the impact of making changes to deployment strategies and business rules.

    Examples of analyses

    • Patient survivability deployment model versus a geographic deployment model.
    • Fuel consumption analysis.
    • Impact of adding resources.
    • Analysis of resource numbers required to meet increasing call volumes.
    • Changes in shift patterns.
    • Changes in deployment strategies (dynamic versus static deployment).
