At the system-of-systems (SoS) level, care coordination is the organization of all activities, both clinical and extra-clinical, among the individual patient and providers involved in the patient's care to facilitate the appropriate delivery of healthcare services. In this part, we expanded upon a system-of systems engineering (SoSE) formalization and simulation modeling methodology for a more in-depth application of discrete event systems specification (DEVS) coordination pathways to reengineer healthcare service systems.
