How is SimCode ACLS™ better than traditional classroom-based methods?

Offering in-person ACLS classes at an institution is resource-intensive in time, personnel, and finances. SimCode ACLS™ is available to your staff 24 hours a day and can be run on nearly any computer that has an internet connection and a browser that supports Adobe Flash Player 9.0 or better.* That means they can learn and practice their ACLS skills at work, home, traveling, whenever they have time. Your staff can circumvent taking time off work for traditional ACLS classes which can translate to increased productivity at your institution.

Furthermore, traditional ACLS training takes place once every two years, allowing your staff plenty of time to forget those vital skills. SimCode ACLS™ encourages users to continually stay on top of their training. With a manager account, you can easily monitor the ACLS competency of your staff at anytime.

*Recommended for use on desktop computers rather than thin-client (terminal) based solutions. See FAQ page for recommended minimum specifications.

How much does does SimCode ACLS™ cost?

SimCode ACLS™ is a highly cost-effective solution to establish and maintain ACLS competency for your staff. It is extremely affordable and generally cost less than traditional ACLS training courses. Moreover, the benefits of SimCode ACLS™ are much greater and last much longer. Other training programs may provide certifications which do not necessarily translate into competency.

How does SimCode ACLS™ build leadership skills and confidence?

Every time your staff runs SimCode ACLS™, they are placed in the driver's seat as the team leader. Their job is to assess the code situation and direct other members of the code team to provide the appropriate interventions. SimCode ACLS™ reflects real-world situations by simulating both physiologic and environmental factors, including the effects of time. Your staff will learn to effectively delegate responsibilities and manage time in order to resuscitate patients efficiently. With regular usage, your staff will develop proficiency which will in turn build confidence.

In addition, by having all of your staff train with SimCode ACLS™, they will have a similar level of competency. This will give them the ability to act as team leader, or to anticipate the team leader's actions and be effective members of the code team.

How is SimCode ACLS™ good for patient safety?

Every minute of uncertainty in reality can translate to a lost life. The simulated patients in SimCode ACLS™ are there for your staff to safely experiment and learn on, without placing anybody's life in jeopardy. By improving their understanding of ACLS protocols and situation management performance, they'll be able to deliver interventions quickly and accurately. Ultimately, you are giving all of your patients a better chance.

Can we use SimCode ACLS™ for ACLS certification?

Certainly, as long as your institutional policy allows. We highly encourage your institution to utilize training modalities which are able to establish and maintain competency, not just mere certification. Using SimCode ACLS™ is an effective way to establish and maintain a standardized level of competency in your group.
