Boston, MA, December 07, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- SIMUL8 Corporation, producers of process improvement simulation software today announced the launch of a new healthcare improvement product; DesignSim for Care. This product is inspired and designed with nurses in mind; allowing them to use simulation and Lean to improve patient care.
The aim of DesignSim for Care is to allow nurses to simulate new layouts to provide evidence for the best improvement solution and, therefore, give more time for patient care. By using DesignSim for Care, nurses will be able to quickly create a computer simulation of their working environment and test how they can improve the efficiency of every day processes.
DesignSim for Care also fits in well with efficiency programs like the UK NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement’s Productive Ward: Releasing time to care™, which focuses on improving ward processes and environments to help nurses spend more time on patient care to improve safety and efficiency.
The addition of this new Lean product for nurses means SIMUL8 Corporation now provides a software tool for every level of a healthcare organization to improve planning, increase efficiency, and reduce waste. DesignSim for Care presents a solution at a time when nurses not only need a tool that offers more time to care for patients, but also lets them practice efficient delivery of care. This has become increasingly important as a recent report by the Institute of Medicine states that in the US alone $130 billion can be attributed to the inefficient delivery of care.
Claire Cordeaux, SIMUL8 Lead for Healthcare, said “Our aim is to put simulation in the hands of decision-makers using our understanding of healthcare and simulation to ensure that tools are easily used and intuitive. In this case we are really excited to have developed a simulation tool that can be used by nurses themselves. We already have a strong presence in healthcare across the world, and this landmark product shows our continued commitment to healthcare improvement.”
