The goal of HealthySimulation.com is to provide unfiltered resources and honest advice to those developing or operating a healthcare simulation program. Through tutorials, program showcasing, product previews and reviews, resource sharing and more, HealthySimulation.com is quickly becoming the premiere independent resource webpage for the healthcare simulation community.
Healthy Simulation is being organized by Lance Baily, who has served as both a Simulation Technician and Simulation Program Administrator. Lance’s background in digital video production and love for computer programming started at Redondo Union High School and developed at UC: Santa Cruz with a BA in Film Studies. Lance then moved to Hollywood where he worked for four years on sets as small as a VH1 Interview to as large as Tom Hank’s feature film Charlie Wilson’s War, doing almost every set job possible (except for hair & makeup)!
Lance left the film business in 2007 and went back to school to become a certified EMT and Fire Academy Graduate. Then in the Summer of 2008 his mother, Kim Baily Director of Nursing at El Camino College in Torrance, showed her son their new Sim Lab (complete with high-fidelity manikins) and all of Lance’s worlds came brilliantly together. Lance quickly became a Simulation Technician for the LA Community College School District with his primary home at LA Harbor College’s Nursing Program. Traveling the World looking at sim labs and attending simulation conferences, Lance quickly became an expert in the process of Simulation, helping out the California Health Occupations Resource Center with their Simulation Technician Job Description.
Lance was hired to Direct the Clinical Simulation Center of Las Vegas in May of 2009 and has been working hard with staff to get the center up and running for the three collaborative schools that utilize the space. He started HealthySimulation.com in April of 2010 to help build an independent community of ‘Simulation Champions’ interested in sharing honest advice, product reviews, and developing the field of Healthcare Simulation.
In 2011 Lance helped to develop the World’s first meeting for Healthcare Simulation Technicians appropriately named the “Gathering of Technicians” or G.O.T. Sim! This sold-out event took place in August of 2011 with over 85 technicians in attendance! What’s more, an overwhelming request was made by the group to continue the event annually. This year, the event continues through a new non-profit organization called the Gathering of Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialists (or GHOSTS for short). The 2nd annual “Gathering” will take place August 3rd and 4th at the Clinical Simulation Center of Las Vegas. Learn more by visiting SimGhosts.Org!
After three years of service Lance left the Clinical Simulation Center of Las Vegas in April of 2012 to focus on the continued success of HealthySimulation.com, SimGhosts.Org and his new venture – HealthySimAdmin. HealthySimAdmin is the world’s first meeting specifically designed for administrators of Healthcare Simulation Programs. Learn more about HealthySimAdmin today!
