Session Description

When Utah Valley Hospital opened its 12-story, 262-bed hospital expansion, 17 clinical departments moved into new spaces with new technology and processes never used in their existing environment. Utah Valley Hospital partnered with HTS Inc. to plan and execute three hospital-wide “day in the life” simulation events, with more than 350 staff members involved in each. The planning took 9-12 months and included coordination between all clinical departments, ancillary and support, construction, education, facilities, IT, and leadership. This presentation will review the planning process, resource and staffing tactics, budget, logistics, and coordination involved in executing this simulation event. The presenters will discuss the challenges and lessons learned throughout their process.
