Abstract

Natural Goals Operators Methods and Selection Rules Language (NGOMSL) model of the clinical process in an Emergency Department (ED) was developed using Micro Saint Sharp. This model advanced our understanding of a care provider's cognitive behavior in a dynamic ED environment. It also revealed the understanding of proximal workflow in the ED and the workload related to clinical processes. The benefits of this study are (a) improved understanding of the relevant form factors of the clinical process that contribute to a heavy workload in the ED and (b) prevention of potential errors caused by the workload. To understand the current ED workflow, hierarchical task analysis (HTA) charts were developed. The HTA charts were used to understand the detailed process mappings of nurses in the ED. Based on this multi-level analysis of the HTA charts, the NGOMSL simulation model was developed.
