This paper is a “call for action” to formalize the typology of models used in healthcare simulation models. A brief taxonomy of model types is presented. Issues of model validity, patient safety and data/system security are brought to the fore to illustrate the challenges in this field. Examples are given that further highlight the research and development challenges.
