Simulation Expert Creates Real Economic Development Opportunities for South Carolina


Dr. John J. Schaefer, III, a SmartState Endowed Chair in the HSSC-supported SmartState Center for Clinical Effectiveness and Patient Safety, continues to be a lightening rod for economic development. Schaefer is the lead national consultant for a key component of the simulation technology infrastructure software SimCapture®, which is a simulation learning management and data capture system under development by B-Line Medical, LLC, in collaboration with the Center for Clinical Effectiveness and Patient Safety Center and the Greenville Health System simulation center. The resulting system will be an affordable, portable, easy-to-use solution for capturing data from simulations to improve education and research. Schaefer has also been asked by Laerdal Medical to be the pre-beta testing site for new products, including new operating systems for SimMan®, SimMan 3G® and SimNewby® simulators. He and his staff are working with Elsevier Publishing to develop programmed clinical scenarios for license through Sim Tunes, LLC.
