John Vozenilek, MD, FACEP Vice President and Chief Medical Officer for Jump Simulation provided the opening keynote address this morning in Peoria IL at the Jump Simulation Center through OSF Healthcare, which was Platinum Sponsored by SimulationIQ. Over 200 simulation champions from around the world joined together to connect with more than 17 vendors at the event.

About SimGHOSTS

SimGHOSTS, aka The Gathering Of Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialists, is an international US-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to supporting individuals and institutions operating medical simulation technology and spaces through: hands-on training events, online resources, and professional development. “SimGHOSTS envisions a healthcare education culture where people are empowered to use simulation technology to improve learning and patient care outcomes.” The team puts on events around the world to help those looking to start or increase the use of simulation based technologies.

About “Dr. Voz”

Prior to his appointment as Vice President and Chief Medical Officer for Simulation for the Jump Trading Simulation & Education Center, “Dr. Voz” was the Director of Simulation Technology and Immersive Learning program for the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University where he provided central coordination and oversight for the undergraduate, graduate, interdisciplinary, and continuing medical education programs. Under his direction, the medical school created additional organizational capabilities and infrastructure, building resources for educators who wish to use additional innovative learning technologies for teaching and assessment, measuring success with patient-based outcomes research.

In May of 2008, Dr. Vozenilek co-chaired the first Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)- sponsored national consensus conference on using simulation research to define and develop clinical expertise. In his work at Northwestern he served as faculty for the Institute for Healthcare Research and its Center for Patient Safety, and continues to teach within its master’s degree program in health care quality and safety. He is currently the chair of the Simulation Academy within the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine and the Chair of the American Board of Medical Specialties Working Group on the use of Simulation for Maintenance of Board Certification for practicing physicians.

His use of simulation and research has included delivery of training and assessment of technical and non-technical competencies, and the use of simulation to emulate a clinical environment for work flow and process change, including electronic health care records (e.g. handoff and inter-hospital patient transfers). These projects demonstrate his expertise in the knowledge, skills, and attitudes required to create and sustain simulations for clinical environments and produce meaningful interventions with enhance health care reliability.

About Jump Trading Simulation Center



Jump Trading Simulation and Education Center opened in April of 2013. Jump was made possible, in part, from a generous $25 million donation named for Jump Trading, a Chicago based trading firm. A collaboration between OSF HealthCare and the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria, Jump is a world-class facility transforming health care through education, research, and innovation. Over 84,000 learning experiences occurred at Jump in the past year, and that number is expected to grow steadily as our programs expand. State-of-the-art simulation devices and facilities attract the finest minds in clinical education and provide the highest level of medical research, training and innovation. Collaboration throughout our community, the region, the nation, and even the world happens every day at Jump and is the cornerstone of our vision to transform health care.

The third and fourth floor of the Jump building are currently being prepared to house the Performance Improvement, Data Analytics, Telehealth, ARCHES, and Clinical Research departments of OSF HealthCare. The rational is that research and development are at the core of what we are doing. Engineers will need access to data to understand what the opportunities are, clinicians to be subject matter experts in the monitoring, care delivery and population health data, simulated environments to test and refine their research before they are tested in clinical trials, and ultimately performance improvement to disseminate the new processes and technologies across our Ministry. This is a place where we can work on projects that will help us make leap growth solutions.

About EMS SimulationIQ

Whether you’re running a single simulation event or thousands, EMS’ SIMULATIONiQ™ uses the latest web-based technologies to simply and seamlessly capture, organize, and analyze the full spectrum of your clinical skills and mannequin-based simulation efforts. Working alongside subject matter experts, we serve as the driving force behind numerous consumer-centered innovations that continue to move the medical simulation software markets forward with breakthrough technologies. The results are tangible: greater visibility, usability, marketability, adaptability, scalability, measurement, and ROI. EMS offers complete turnkey solutions for clinical simulation training environments that include high stakes exams with standardized patients and integration with simulators, audio-video technology, design and planning, engineering, configuration, installation, training, and one-call support for both software and hardware.

Although the success of your clinical simulation program largely relies on educators, as simulation management technology and methodology become more sophisticated, it is important for sim tech staff to be an ongoing partner for planning, maintenance, and problem solving.

Sim tech staff need to interact not only with internal stakeholders but also with external simulation center management companies such as EMS to ensure that: all communication lines are open to make sure needs and requirements are perfectly clear; continuous engagement is maintained before, during, and after a clinical simulation center is built; common ground is established between the educators, planning, and tech staff for successful outcomes. Since its founding in 1994, EMS has established a reputation for delivering superior and dependable solutions and providing unprecedented levels of customer service and support keeping our customers on the leading edge. www.SIMULATIONiQ.com

JUMP Trading Simulation & Education Center Leads Innovation for Medical Simulation

Jump Trading Simulation Center

Jump Trading Simulation & Education is a powerful force for innovation within our community of medical simulation. Recently the Center brought together leaders from High Consequence Industries (HCIs) came together to share ideas on Safety, Training, and Engineering Processes because Technology is evolving at a rapidly increasing pace, and with it, so do advances and concerns in safety science.

At the event “former Air Force Flight Surgeon and Captain for United Airlines, (retired) Dr. Bill Rutherford, believes that technology has become a crutch for safety. When technology starts to do everything for you, it is easy to lose focus. Over time, people begin to feel that they don’t actually need to perform, and hence lose – or never acquire – the knowledge to safely execute basic functions. This inability to perform becomes an issue when there is a hardware or software failure that requires a person to take control of the situation.

Going back to the basics could also save time and money. In health care, a lot of unnecessary costs could be avoided if caregivers were to take the time to talk to the patient and do a physical examination instead of immediately requesting tests and letting machines do the work. To reestablish and maintain such a culture, Dr. Rutherford believes that industries should continually reappraise training priorities and approaches, as well instilling the tenants of a Culture of Safety.” Click to read more…

This event is just one of dozens of collaborative projects, events and partnerships the JUMP team has put together through the leadership of Chief Medical Officer John Vozenilek, MD, FACEP, Executive Director of Innovation Paul Pribaz, and the rest of the amazing faculty and staff of this program. Whether its partnering engineers and clinicians through their ARCHES program, Entrepreneur in Residence support, courses on startup success or work with CSE Software, JUMP has their focus forward.
