This chapter discusses a simulation framework to guide design, development, and evaluation of architectures for pathways-based coordination of care. A simulation model was presented that exemplifies this framework and is intended to predict ROI for implementing pathways-based coordination as well its sustainability over the long term. The model does not include dimensions such as client risk characteristics, the referral source of clients to the coordination program, the effect of incentives on service workers' performance, and alignment of pathways with payments. Including these dimensions would be needed to increase the predictive capability to address questions about pathways that are important for their implementation in value-based healthcare.
