Scottsdale Healthcare’s Military Partnership Advances Military Medical Personnel Training with EMS Technology

Education Management Solutions will help Scottsdale Healthcare Military Partnership shape the future of military medical personnel training with simulation management technology.

Exton, PA, April 28, 2011 --( Scottsdale Healthcare Military Partnership will use Education Management Solutions’ (EMS) simulation management technology in its new Military Training Center located on the Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn Medical Center campus in Scottsdale, Arizona. The 7,500-square- foot Military Training Center features high-tech human simulators that bleed and imitate battlefield trauma injuries to provide hands-on training to military medical personnel.

Scottsdale Healthcare, one of the first community hospitals in the nation to provide military trauma training, is a model for other hospitals and military bases in preparing military medical personnel while building relationships that can be used in possible disaster response situations. Scottsdale Healthcare’s Military Partnership, created in 2004, has provided more than 1,000 military medical personnel with the skills and experience needed to perform successfully under wartime conditions. With the addition of EMS’ SIMXpress, a simulation management and audio-video recording solution, military medical personnel will have the ability to improve their clinical and technical skills, and build their behavioral skills such as leadership, communication, and team work, which are necessary in trauma and disaster scenarios.

EMS’ SIMXpress is a portable, wireless, web-based, audio-video recording, performance evaluation, and data management solution. According to Vance Nesbitt, Scottsdale Healthcare Military Partnership Medical Simulations Coordinator, “SIMXpress is versatile enough to take out of the lab and into the field, enabling us to create more challenging and realistic field medical emergency scenarios. It will enable us to better record, view and evaluate military medical personnel during emergency scenarios.”
