Advances in data and process mining algorithms combined with the availability of sophisticated information systems have created an encouraging environment for innovations in simulation modelling. Researchers have investigated the integration between such algorithms and business process modelling to facilitate the automation of building simulation models. These endeavors have resulted in a prototype termed Auto Simulation Model Builder (ASMB) for DES models. However, this prototype has limitations that undermine applying it on complex systems. This paper presents an extension of the ASMB framework previously developed by authors adopted for healthcare systems. The proposed framework offers a comprehensive solution for resources handling to support complex decision-making processes around hospital staff planning. The framework also introduces a machine learning real-time data-driven prediction approach for system performance using advanced activity blocks for the auto-generated model, based on live-streams of patient data. This prediction can be useful for both single and multiple healthcare units management.
