The Department of Veterans Affairs has exercised the third year option of its five-year contract with DecisionSim to expand the use of the latterâ€™s simulation teaching platform to agencyÂ employees.
The company said Tuesday its DecisionSim platform is designed to train and assessÂ VA healthcare professionals and nonclinical staff through simulation of real-world medical processes and situations.
VAâ€™s Employee Education System team has integrated DecisionSim’s offeringÂ with palliative care, nurse education, womenâ€™s health, staff training and research efforts since the agency signed the contract in 2012, according to the company.
â€œWe are pleased the VA is increasing its use of DecisionSim to help meet the simulation-training needs of its healthcare professionals and other stakeholders,â€ DecisionSim CEO Bob Yayac said.
The company collaborates with management consulting firm Catapult Technology under the contract.
