SIMULATION TECHNOLOGY TO LEVEL THE HOSPITAL SAFETY PLAYING FIELD

The landmark report, To Err is Human, estimated that as many as 270 patients die per day as a result of errors in patient care. Since then, the rate of medical errors has not declined and studies suggest it may have increased. Many of these errors result from poor communication across care teams. Traditionally, team training occurs on the job. While many academic medical centers employ sophisticated and expensive simulation ...more »

Practicum in Perfection

We train social workers to reproduce existing remedies to complex social problems rather than developing new paradigms of human health premised on a vision of a perfect world. To that end we propose to build a cyber field experience called Practicum in Perfection that allows students to envision and then create ideal solutions to critical health and social disparities. Through avatars in a cyber world this practicum ...more »

Bridging the Cultural Competency Gap to Save Lives

A documented result of that inexperience is that diverse patients are in danger of being misunderstood, misdiagnosed, and receiving inequitable, inferior care. The Cincinnati Children’s Office of Diversity & Inclusion’s (D&I) pitch for a solution: • D&I is collaborating to develop complex, highly interactive clinical simulations ...more »

Health agencies need better analytics. Meet Epy.io

With novel threats emerging at an increasing rate while resources are declining, it has never been harder for health agencies to keep up in today’s unpredictable landscape of disease surveillance. The tools being used (annual PDF reports, research behind paywalls, data hidden in spreadsheets) struggle to deliver the accuracy and efficiency required. With Epy.io's data processing factory, local health agencies can transform ...more »

Curing Crashes: A New Medical Approach to Diagnosing and Treating Unsafe Young Drivers

Each year, crashes lead the causes of death to young adults (ages 16-24): 4-fold more deaths than from cancer; 38-fold more than from Flu. Yet, despite strong science on risk factors and prevention interventions, we lack young driver clinical care models. Crash prevention relies largely on “one-size-fits-all” driving laws rather than the IOM-recommended tiered risk approach: match prevention interventions with assessed ...more »

Protect Mothers: Healthy Nation = Healthy Mothers + Healthy Children

It is reported that 284,000 maternal deaths in 2010 in developing countries are largely due to treatable complications at or around the time of delivery. The majority of maternal health related problems are caused by ignorance, poor health, quality care and type of provider assisting birth. The interactive participation in health related training to women, their families and communities would change the social behaviour ...more »
