Simulation offers both educational and research opportunities for rare events. Simulatin is vitally important in both research and training for topics such as surge capacity and mass casualty incidents where the true events are rare and cannot be relied upon to provide reliable enough exposure. At MedStatStudio we are world leaders in simulation of emergency department surge capacity using the SurgeSim software. In addition, we have experience in discrete event simulation of complex processes

SurgeSim allows simulation of the critical initial Emergency Department management when increased surge capacity is needed. Events such as mass casualty incidents and infectious pandemics place extreme stress on Emergency Department flow, and knowing how an Emergency Department will respond is vital for Emergency Planning SurgSim allows Emergency Department and Intensive care staff to test the Surge Capacity of their own departments using their own staff and Emergency Management Plans. SurgeSim is an excellent team-building exercise, as participants are forced to work together as a group to a single common goal of managing an Emergency Department during a crisis

High Fidelity Simulation Performance Evaluation

MedStatStudio researchers are working to bring simulation performance evaluation to the standards set by other modalities in medical education. Until methods to evaluate performance can be depended upon to be accurate, simulation cannot be relied upon for evaluative purposes. We can provide statistical and logistic support to ensure that methods used to evaluate performance are valid and reliable. This includes evaluation by global assessment tools, skills indicators, and other performance markers.
