DENVER, Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Simulation Corporation (MSC) proudly announces a new agreement with Brigham and Women's Hospital, a teaching-affiliate of Harvard Medical School and a healthcare leader in patient quality, safety, and education. The agreement includes MSC's endovascular simulation system, Simantha®, and MSC's curriculum and training services to advance Brigham and Women's Hospital's continuing education and patient safety goals over the next three years.

The SimSuite Endovascular System will be located at the Neil and Elise Wallace STRATUS Center for Medical Simulation at Brigham and Women's Hospital. STRATUS (Simulation, Training, Research and Technology Utilization System) employs a variety of simulation technologies to advance education, assessment, and research. Since opening its doors in 2004, STRATUS has become a worldwide leader in utilizing simulation to improve healthcare quality and patient safety. STRATUS's operational model draws on both educational and technical staff to support faculty in the development and execution of simulation programs for healthcare providers at all levels of training. STRATUS also offers a fellowship in medical simulation in partnership with the Harvard Graduate School of Education. In addition, STRATUS is working with CRICO, the medical malpractice insurer for the Harvard Medical community, to lower premiums for physicians who successfully complete simulation team training programs.

"We are excited about the addition of this new simulator to advance our mission of education through the use of simulation," says Charles Pozner, MD, Medical Director, Neil and Elise Wallace STRATUS Center for Medical Simulation at Brigham and Women's Hospital. "Its broad applications in the fields of interventional cardiology, electrophysiology, interventional radiology, and vascular surgery will allow STRATUS to meet the educational needs of these disciplines both within our institution as well as throughout the region."

"MSC is proud to collaborate with Brigham and Women's Hospital, an innovator and worldwide leader in improving healthcare through advanced technologies and training," says Bill Younkes, MSC President and CEO. "The SimSuite Endovascular System creates a high-fidelity, immersive training environment that aligns with the STRATUS educational mission to improve the skill and confidence level of all healthcare providers through realistic and risk-free training experiences."

The SimSuite Endovascular System provides cognitive and technical learning opportunities for all healthcare professionals working in cardiology, vascular surgery, interventional cardiology and interventional radiology, as well as for hospital-based nurses and emergency room teams. Brigham and Women's may also contract with MSC for onsite clinical education services to help meet short-term training and quality objectives.
