Renovate, then renovate again. Health care facilities often follow that pattern when adjustments are needed to space and systems to provide better patient care. High-fidelity simulation (“sim”) saves time and money by aiding in the evaluation process of spaces and scenarios to refine design elements that will provide the best outcomes for clinicians, patients, and families. Facilities of all sizes may find this especially useful when evaluating productivity, emergency response, pre-commissioning, and other processes. In this session, review proven simulation tools that are being used to make informed, smart hospital design decisions. Case studies will show how this technology affects patients, families, staff, and the bottom line.
This session will enable attendees to:
Evaluate the benefits of using simulation.
Explore how the use of simulation can inform design or renovation projects.
Describe the steps needed to implement a successful simulation program.
Identify team members needed to implement a successful simulation program.
