Education Management Solutions (EMS), a Minority and Woman-owned Business Enterprise (M/WBE), is an industry pioneer in simulation-based solutions for healthcare training environments – ranging from clinical simulation management software and hardware to counselor education and virtual interactive computer-based training tools.
Working alongside subject matter experts, we serve as the driving force behind numerous consumer-centered innovations that continue to move the clinical simulation market forward with breakthrough technologies.
We understand that clinical simulation is no longer a nice-to-have, but rather a learning necessity – and without the proper clinical simulation management tools it can be overwhelming to manage.
Our SIMULATIONiQ Enterprise solution is the only clinical simulation management operating platform that delivers unmatched performance for standardized patient- and mannequin-based training, and brings all the programs, people, and processes into a single, simplified view that saves time, improves clinical outcomes, and provides peace of mind.
What We Do
DEFINING THE DATA STORM
Medical simulation has evolved from an educational afterthought to a clinical learning necessity. And in the new healthcare landscape, it’s become even more relevant for its ability to impact what we call the BIG 3 – safety, quality, and cost.
But as the adoption of medical simulation training has grown exponentially, the amount of associated data and information has exploded. Research shows that figure is doubling about every two years.
And worse, the information is fragmented across various devices, departments, sources, and systems.
History of Simulation
HISTORY OF SIMULATION
Simulation-based training is the gold standard in clinical education. But the use of simulation dates back decades, to other high-stakes industries such as aviation (flight simulators) and the military (combat training).
The goal of all types of simulation is skill development for improved safety. The learner trains and learns from mistakes in a safe environment: at no point during a flight simulation is an actual plane in danger of crashing or causing passenger injuries due to pilot error, and likewise, the clinical learner using medical simulation can build assessment, diagnosis, critical thinking, and communication skills without ever jeopardizing the health and wellbeing of a real patient.
