John P. Ansah, PhD is an Assistant Professor within the Center for Community Health Integration. He comes to Case Western Reserve University from Duke-NUS, in Singapore.
Dr. Ansah has greater than ten years’ experience in the application of simulation modelling to complex health policy issues. His research uses computational modeling—with systems thinking and System Dynamics methodology as the foundation—coupled with the active involvement of stakeholders to better understand complex health systems issues to inform policy and interventions to improve health outcomes. His research interests lie broadly in the area of health systems improvement—to address strategic and operational health and social care challenges – and the evaluation of health system-wide impacts of complex health and social care interventions.
His current research interests lie broadly within the area of healthcare: in particular the use of dynamic simulation modeling to address strategic and operational health and social care challenges of an aging population and rapidly changing healthcare system. In addition, he is particularly interested in the use of dynamic simulation models to evaluate health system-wide impacts of complex health and social care interventions.
Dr. Ansah holds a PhD degree in Systems Science methodology of System Dynamics from the University of Bergen, Bergen, Norway.
