IMSH 2016 Opens in San Diego

imsh 2016

The 16th annual International Meeting for Simulation in Healthcare launched yesterday and the number of new companies entering our space is staggering. Perhaps the reason has something to do with SSH President Chad Epps announcement during the opening ceremonies that this was the most attended IMSH event ever with over 2500 attendees! The opening ceremonies received a standing ovation after a number of champions from around the world shared their personal stories that connected their lives to the opportunities of simulation. It was a fantastic way to remind the community that the end goal of simulation, is the patient safety outcomes that come with improved training and healthier professional communication practices.

HealthySimulation will be interviewing many of the vendors tomorrow so stay tuned for all our upcoming video content highlighting the latest in simulation technologies.
