The 4DHealth Innovation Simulation Center is a pioneering simulated hospital located in Barcelona, Spain. 4DHealth uses state-of-the-art simulation to recreate the whole health environment in which a variety of real scenarios can be played out by participants. Training via simulation allows the participants to acquire technical and non-technical competencies without exposing training professionals to patients. This results in a reduction in errors and increased patient safety.
Healthcare professionals and students of different specialties can train within 4D health and design new plans, processes and applications, which can be applied in a number of healthcare scenarios. The center also interacts with health companies and suppliers. Studies have concluded that simulation and team training for complex situations can have a positive impact on healthcare provision, and initial studies have shown that 4DHealth is producing positive qualitative and quantitative results.
