SimGHOSTS proudly introduces Level 3 Healthcare as the Platinum Sponsor of 2014 USA Event. Sponsoring both the Opening Keynote address and the Opening Reception at PinStripes Bowling, Level 3 Medical is looking to powerfully connect with the SimGHOSTS international community. As well, the SG14 event team has added a special plenary panel Friday morning to dive deeper into the Level 3 Medical build-out of the Cedars Sinai Simulation program.

SimGHOSTS President James Cypert will present on the importance of bringing in basic research methods in support of the professional development of Simulation Techs. He will begin a conversation about community focus and topics for future research and invite a networking dialog to establish collaboration opportunities for designing, conducting, collecting, writing, and submitting well‑formed research. The goal of this year’s keynote address is to provide some of the basic tools, resources, and methods for providing evidence‑based practice for simulation technologists, ascertaining cogent research topics, and identifying collaborative opportunities, and establishing working relationships to achieve higher levels of dialog from and with the technician community.

Level 3 Medical Sponsored SimGHOSTS 2014: USA Keynote address “Of Mice and Geeks: Elevating the Dialog Through Research”

James Cypert – Technology Director – California Baptist University, President, SimGHOSTS

“By seeking and blundering we learn.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

When the concept of “research” for the typical geek invokes images of Gandalf at Minas Tirith frantically searching through the hordes of scrolls and tombs looking for information about the One Ring. For others, it could be an image of Master Yoda and Obi‑Wan in the Jedi Temple discovering the betrayal of Anakin. That imagery aside, research is fundamentally exactly this, a search for the truth of any matter, and research can be done by anyone. In fact, we all conduct research at various levels. The issue at hand however, is how does one go about conducting research that is acceptable to others that is well‑formed, and answers definitively any given question. With that in mind the purpose of this session is to explore the basic research methods for the simulation technician.

The learning objectives of this keynote are:

1. Acquire knowledge about basic research methods
2. Identify the core components conducting of research
3. Discuss possible topics for SimGHOSTS community research focus
4. Identify individuals in the community that can be used as resources for research

James will present basic research methods that everyone can apply, then begin a conversation about community focus and topics for future research. To wrap up the session the facilitator will invite a networking dialog to establish collaboration opportunities for designing, conducting, collecting, writing, and submitting well‑formed research.

About Level 3 Medical:

The medical division of Level 3 has been providing advanced multimedia solutions in minimally invasive surgical environments and simulation centers since 2007. This Phoenix based medical engineering group has pioneered designs in telehealth, live HD video distribution, recording, archiving, content management and media retrieval systems for medical universities, teaching hospitals and simulation labs. Level 3 Medical’s core competency is integrating the myriad of medical, simulation, broadcast and professional technology into a seamless, easy to use system or application. Our approach is to work directly with our clients to understand their use case and apply technology to improve efficiency, work flow, profitability and/or learning. Examples of our applications include; intraoperative surgical suites, digital O.R.’s, nursing simulation centers, procedure rooms, 3D visualization facilities, clinical AV networks, campus-wide central recording systems and video conferencing initiatives for collaboration and critical decision making.

Level 3 Medical was founded as a division of Level 3 Audio Visual who has been well established in the commercial industry since 1996. Level 3 AV had been working with a major medical university on their classroom presentation technology when they were presented with a challenge from the Dean of Anatomy. Level 3 AV was asked to design and build a cordless, wireless, mobile HD video cart for their anatomy lab. The Dean and his faculty had several uses in mind for this cart but Its main purpose was to capture high definition video from a student’s cadaver, transmit that video to an AV head end, store and meta-tag the captured video while simultaneously transmitting the video back out to twenty, high definition, LCD monitors dispersed around the lab as well as to a secondary lab located across the campus. A secondary purpose of this cart was for the creation of video text books that could be produced and stored online as an additional reference for the medical staff and students.

The creation and use of this cart was a major success for both Level 3 Medical as well as the University. Level 3 Medical realized they had just created one of, if not the first ever, high definition telemedicine carts and, for the University, use of this cart was shown to increase both test scores as well as enrollment.

Level 3 Medical is a customer focused group of medical engineers trained in the process of applying current technology to existing medical work spaces, medical training centers and simulation labs.
