Presentation Abstract:

The WISER Simulation Information Management System (SIMS) is an exciting cloud-based solution to facilitate efficient operations of your clinical simulation center. Join this webinar, hosted by Society for Simulation in Healthcare Past-President and UPMC WISER Director Dr. Paul Phrampus, to learn how you too can increase simulation program efficiency with the cloud-based SIMS tool. Watch a demonstration of use cases to understand how this powerful system coordinates all aspects of the four core components of healthcare simulation, including learners, faculty, equipment, and environments. The SIMS system then simplifies and automates your scheduling, resource utilization, learning management system, as well as data needs that, allow for increased efficiency in your operation as well as decreased administrative staff through automation.

The SIMS system has evolved from the operational needs of busy medical simulation centers to solving the logistical, data management, learning management, and scheduling needs of moderate to large-scale simulation programs. The SIMS system has been the backbone of running operations at UPMC's WISER Simulation Center for over 15 years and powers several other notable simulation programs around the world -- and is now also available to you!

Learning Objectives:

  1. Learn about the core components associated with operationally managing a medical simulation program.
  2. Define three important uses of data for simulation programs to improve clinical outcomes.
  3. Define three scheduling challenges associated with operations of a simulation program, and demonstrate how the SIMS tool can overcome these challenges and more!
