Lance Baily To Support the Launch of New Preterm Simulator from SimCharacters
Sim Champs it must be clear by now that as the Founder of HealthySimulation, SimGHOSTS and other simulation-based resources that I have a passion for the technological innovation of the healthcare simulation industry. I truly believe in the power of this methodology and technology to help improve learning and patient safety outcomes. Happy to announce today that I will be working for the next few months as a “Marketing and Strategy Consultant” with the Austrian-based company SimCharacters to help with the launch of their new High Emotion preterm simulator, Paul.
This summer while traveling between SESAM and SimGHOSTS events I had the opportunity to come through Vienna to meet with the SimCharacters team, who are located in the same offices as SimStation. I was amazed how these two companies and their partners and leveraged two decades of experience to connect development, project management, clinical education, video production, website, and media production facility design into a powerful collaborative group.
Founded by Neonatologist and Simulation Trainer Dr. Jens-Christian Schwindt, the new company brings together a wonderful team of mechanical/electrical engineers, movie special effects and makeup artists, software developers, clinical educators, and business entrepreneurs that I immediately connected with. Having seen the latest prototype of the Paul High Emotion Simulator, I can attest that this powerful new technology will massively enhance the learning opportunities of neonate teams around the world like nothing we have seen before.
