Medical Simulation Consulting
Looking to expand your staff, select the right equipment for your labs, develop a new simulation program or start generating external revenue?
As a video producer, EMS/firefighter, simulation technology specialist, medical simulation center administrator, conference organizer, and business entrepreneur – Lance Baily has the background and the experience necessary to guide your simulation-based project to the next level. After serving as a Simulation Technology Specialist in Los Angeles, Lance became the Director of the 31,000 square feet multi-institutional multi-disciplinary Clinical Simulation Center of Las Vegas in May of 2009. Since that time until Lance left the CSCLV in April of 2012, the center nearly doubled in staff, provided simulation training to over 80 collaborative faculty and brought in over $250,000 in external revenue.
In 2010, Lance started HealthySimulation.com, a free and independent resource website for the healthcare simulation community. This free resource website now provides 7,000 unique visitors a month with medical simulation related news, resources, product reviews and more. The HealthySim free monthly newsletter now provides over 2,200 simulation champions from around the world with all the best of HealthySimluation.com!
In 2012 Lance began a new non-profit organization called The Gathering of Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialists (SimGHOSTS.Org) which provides online resources and an annual hands-on training event to Sim Techs from around the world. The 2012 event brought together over 155 Sim Techs to train in manikin programming, simulation hardware maintenance and repair, a/v debugging and production, moulage makeup, medical terminology & pharmacology, team leadership, process development and more. The 2013 event took place at the San Antonio College School of Nursing with 171 Sim Techs in attendance. In 2014, SimGHOSTS will be hosted by the American College of Chest Physicians, and will launch a second event at the University of the Sunshine Coast in Queensland Australia.
In 2012, Lance continued the development of the growing international community of medical simulation champions with a recorded event called HealthySimAdmin, a two day broadcasted event to provide an open and online discussion for the administrative “how to” of simulation.
In 2014, Lance and his team launched Konsiderate.com – a new community-driven ratings and review website for medical simulation products and services, which utilizes individuals professional LinkedIn profiles to sign in. Currently the website is in ALPHA-testing.
