An agent-based architecture of the Digital Twin for an Emergency Department

Abstract : The Digital Twin (DT) concept seems to be one of the ways to improve the management of patient pathways in Emergency Departments (ED). This article proposes an agent-based architecture of a DT designed for that purpose. The core of this DT is its Information System (IS), which is regularly synchronised in the IS of the Physical Twin (PT). The agents model the ED's resources (equipment and staff) and patients in the DT, and update this information in the DT's IS. This article shows how such a DT may operate in three modes: (0) "Digital Shadow" to monitor the ED's current state in real-time, (1) "Synchronised DT" to monitor the ED current and future states according to a predictive simulation, and (2) "Exploratory DT" in order to perform "What-if" analyses. The proposition is illustrated on a emulation of the ED to demonstrate the capabilities.
