In this chapter, we introduce a framework based on four perspectives, which allows multi-perspective modeling and holistic simulation of healthcare systems. Interactions between models of different perspectives are realized by dynamic update of models through output-to-parameter integration during concurrent simulations. Such an approach provides multiple levels of explanation for the same system, while offering, at the same time, an integrated view of the whole. The novelty of our approach is that notable components of the healthcare system are modeled as autonomous systems that can influence and be influenced by their environments. The resulting global model can be coupled with a holistic experimental frame to derive results that could not be accurately addressed in any of the perspective taken alone.
