IVIR Inc. attended the IMSH Conference in San Antonio. The International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH) is a scientific conference that explores the latest innovations and best practices in healthcare simulation. Mrs. Strayhorn has been selected to the Board of Directors and is also the Chair for the Corporate Roundtable for the Society for Simulation and Healthcare (SSH).
IVIR Inc. attended the San Diego Military Medical Operations Conference where top medical people held discussions about new initiatives going forward in medical training
IVIR Inc. welcomes William Lewandowski, II as Chief Technology Officer. Bill has worked for the last 21 years in the software engineering arena. A majority of that time (14 years) was focused on modeling and simulation in Aviation and DoD as a senior developer or chief architect. Bill will play a major role to execute IVIR’s strategy for technology research and software architecture.
IVIR Inc. attended I/ITSEC in Orlando, FL. I/ITSEC is organized by the National Training and Simulation Association (NTSA), which promotes international and interdisciplinary cooperation within the fields of modeling and simulation (M&S), training, education, analysis, and related disciplines at this annual meeting. The NTSA is an affiliate subsidiary of the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA), emphasizes themes related to defense and security.
IVIR Inc., along with its partners, were awarded a $2M contract by the US Department of Defense to make recommendations for changes to current medic and corpsman training and to develop two prototype medical simulators. These simulators will give medics and corpsmen a chance to practice the types of advanced skills necessary to prepare them for the challenges they may face on future battlefields. Catherine Strayhorn, the IVIR Inc., CEO said, “IVIR is very excited to be selected for this program, we understand the extreme conditions our soldiers experience and this offers an opportunity to enhance medical training that will ultimately improve outcomes”. William E. Lewandowski, the IVIR Inc. Principal Investigator on the project said, “We see this project as an important part of meeting Lieutenant General West’s goal of having zero preventable deaths on the battlefield, and we are focused on doing our part to make that happen.”
