NTSA Modeling & Simulation Leadership Summit Seeks Zero Harm to Patients
Next week, the National Training and Simulation Association (NTSA) hosts its 2020 Modeling & Simulation Leadership Summit which seeks to create a world with zero patient harm. Medical errors are estimated to kill over 200,000 patients every year in the United States alone, which is as much as crashing a 747 jumbo jet worth of passengers every single day! The NTSA is dedicating this unique event to find new ways the U.S. government could support patient safety to reduce medical errors across the country — and there is still time to register to attend!
The Modeling & Simulation Leadership Summit is an event sponsored by the National Training and Simulation Association (NTSA) in support of the Modeling and Simulation Congressional Caucus. The purpose of the event is to bring the M&S Community of Practice together to discuss important issues related to Modeling and Simulation, and to try to reach consensus on one or two specific, actionable initiatives for the Congressional M&S Caucus to take for action.
The 2020 M&S Leadership Summit will highlight the exciting initiatives in patient safety and modeling & simulation in healthcare. Members of the Congressional Modeling & Simulation Caucus will be in attendance, along with other Congressional staffers. Keynotes and panels will feature visionaries in patient safety initiatives in healthcare simulation, along with scalable best practices . This event should not be missed as it is an opportunity to provide input into a report to the Caucus highlighting potential legislative initiatives
Co-located with the M&S Leadership Summit, the 2nd Annual Amazing Grace Defense Symposium will be held on February 25 & 26, 2020 at the Lexington Hotel and Conference Center.
Special Guests and Participants are Set to Include:
- Congressman John Rutherford, 4th District of Florida
- Congressman Bobby Scott, 3rd District of Virginia
- Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy, 7th District of Florida
- Congressman Jack Bergman, 1st District of Michigan
- Keynote Address: Mary Patterson, MD, University of Florida
About the NTSA
Organizations and individuals in the Modeling & Simulation and Training industries are represented through membership in the National Training and Simulation Association (NTSA), a proud affiliate of the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA). NTSA provides the training, simulation, related support systems and training services industries a focused, formal organization to represent and promote their business interests in the market place. NTSA also fosters relationships between the training industry, planners and acquisition agencies regarding requirements, procurement issues and policies.
The NTSA objectives are to:
- Represent to government the non-partisan business interests of the simulation, training and support services industries.
- Increase the value of training systems and services provided by industry to government.
- Inform and educate the legislative policymaking acquisition and regulatory functions of government, including Congress, the Department of Defense (DoD) and other agencies.
- Provide direct contact between acquisition activities and the industry to better communicate with regard to procurement issues and policies.
- Provide industry-wide bulletins and news reports.
- Act as a clearing house for business policy, ethics and practices affecting industry
