World's First Healthcare Simulation "Hackathon", Gold Sponsored by EMS SimulationIQ


World's First Healthcare Simulation "Hackathon", Gold Sponsored by EMS SimulationIQ

Hackathon, or "hackfest", is a design sprint-like event in which creative, technical, and subject matter experts come together to build an innovative project to address a common problem. Hackathons typically last between a day and a week and are usually intended for educational, social, or industry wide purposes.  Industry experts will lead teams covering key domains healthcare, simulation, business, hardware manufacturing, software development, and moulage. Join EMS SimulationIQ and SimGHOSTS to identify simulation industry wide challenges and help to “HACK” an innovative solution!

Over the past several years, the international healthcare simulation community has overwhelmingly requested that SimGHOSTS put on this innovative development workshop to find and solve industry challenges. Thanks to EMS SimulationIQ, this one day event is FREE for all attendees of SimGHOSTS 2017 USA who wish to work with peers to develop a new innovative product, service, or system.

About EMS

Whether you’re running a single simulation event or thousands, EMS' SIMULATIONiQ™ uses the latest web-based technologies to simply and seamlessly capture, organize, and analyze the full spectrum of your clinical skills and mannequin-based simulation efforts. Working alongside subject matter experts, we serve as the driving force behind numerous consumer-centered innovations that continue to move the medical simulation software markets forward with breakthrough technologies. The results are tangible: greater visibility, usability, marketability, adaptability, scalability, measurement, and ROI. EMS offers complete turnkey solutions for clinical simulation training environments that include high stakes exams with standardized patients and integration with simulators, audio-video technology, design and planning, engineering, configuration, installation, training, and one-call support for both software and hardware.

Although the success of your clinical simulation program largely relies on educators, as simulation management technology and methodology become more sophisticated, it is important for sim tech staff to be an ongoing partner for planning, maintenance, and problem solving. Sim tech staff need to interact not only with internal stakeholders but also with external simulation center management companies such as EMS to ensure that: all communication lines are open to make sure needs and requirements are perfectly clear; continuous engagement is maintained before, during, and after a clinical simulation center is built; common ground is established between the educators, planning, and tech staff for successful outcomes.

Since its founding in 1994, EMS has established a reputation for delivering superior and dependable solutions and providing unprecedented levels of customer service and support keeping our customers on the leading edge.
