WALL, NJ - MONOC Mobile Health Services is proud to be part of the wining 2013 NY/NJ Regional SimWARS championship team.  The annual competition was hosted by North Shore LIJ Health System in New York and held at the Center for Learning and Innovation at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research.  Paramedic Wendy Wright from MONOC competed on a team with physicians and a nurse from Newark Beth Israel Medical Center’s Emergency Department.

SimWARS is double-elimination competition that challenges clinical interdisciplinary healthcare teams to compete against each other in simulated patient scenarios. Each team’s performance was reviewed by an expert panel examining the areas of teamwork, communication, and clinical decision making. Then, the audience voted on the winner of each case using an audience response system based on their direct observation of the panel’s input.

Vince Robbins, MONOC’s President and CEO said, “We couldn’t be prouder here at MONOC.  This win just reinforces that the hard work and dedication our staff puts forth to achieve clinical excellence is not only evident to our patients but to others in healthcare.”  MONOC works closely with Newark Beth Israel Medical Center on a number of ventures including their residency program and clinical research projects. Additionally, physicians from their EMS Fellowship program ride as prehospital physicians on MONOC’s MD-1 emergency response vehicle.
