Cleveland Clinic Opens Simulation Center to Improve Healthcare Delivery

The Cleveland Clinic is investing millions of dollars in simulation technology, including patient simulators, to better train its staff members at its newly opened Multidisciplinary Simulation Center, according to a Crain's Cleveland report.


The simulation center allows healthcare providers to train in real-life scenarios, such as childbirth or cardiac arrest, without risk of patient harm. The rubber patient simulators can bleed, convulse and even scream in reaction to clinicians' healthcare decisions.

The simulation center also includes an audio/visual system that records each medical scenario so clinicians can later review and learn from the simulations.
