Accessible simulation methods to support healthcare improvements

Presenters: Claire Cordeaux, lead for healthcare, SIMUL8 Corporation; Michele Stuart, president, Efficiency Engineers; Stephen Burrows, NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement Worldwide

While simulation has been widely applied by the academic community in healthcare, it is by no means routinely used to support decision-making. In this webinar, presenters from the U.S. and U.K. health systems give testimony to new and exciting tools and techniques that are making simulation more accessible to healthcare practitioners. 

  • Claire Cordeaux from SIMUL8 Corporation talks about new applications and techniques which are helping healthcare organizations to gain the benefits of simulation, without being an expert. 
  • Michele Stuart from Efficiency Engineers shares how simulation techniques are enabling the improved efficiency and effectiveness of several process initiatives within Geisinger Health Systems. 
  • Stephen Burrows provides insight into work in Care Oregon where nurses are engaged in the use of simulation to release their time to care for patients.

There were some questions asked during the webinar that there wasn’t time to answer, but the presenters will be posting answers to all of these on simhealthcare.com – a new online healthcare and simulation community that aims to get people interested in healthcare improvement to share experience and resources.

SIMUL8 Corporation will also be in Las Vegas at the Healthcare Systems Process Improvement Conference from Feb 18-20, so drop by booth 121 if you’d like to find out more.
