The value proposition of simulation

  • September 1, 2016

A multidisciplinary panel was convened during the 8th Annual Meeting of the Consortium of the American College of Surgeons-Accredited Education Institutes (Simulation Centers) in March 2015 to discuss the added value of simulation-based training. Panelists shared the ways in which the value of simulation was demonstrated at their institutions. Representatives from Massachusetts General Hospital shared about the hospital’s unique collaboration with CRICO and how it contributes to valued-added simulation..


MGH says, CRICO data and funding has served as a stimulus for many simulation efforts at the institution. “Because of the unique longstanding partnership with CRICO, simulation has become an integral part of the larger hospital initiative to improve patient safety across the Harvard network. Future plans include expanding the use of simulation to robotic cases and OR codes,” said MGH representatives.
