Have you seen the MobileSim trucks yet?
Last year, the Helmsley Charitable Trust granted Montana funds to implement Simulation in Motion Montana, or MobileSim. Through the grant, three mobile simulation training trucks and high definition simulation manikins were purchased with the goal of providing education and training to rural EMS services and hospitals.
The MobileSim trucks feature three rooms - a fully functional emergency room, the back of an ambulance, and an observation room. The manikins are high-fidelity computerized training tools that talk, breathe, have heartbeats, and react to medications and other actions of the learners.
Now that the trucks are purchased, the next step is for Simulation in Motion, Inc. is to contract with a Project Management Entity to manage day to day operations such as staffing and education. A Project Management Entity will be selected through an RFP process.
