The “HealthStream Resuscitation Innovation Lab” is a pilot program from Community Health Systems to train medical to face code blue emergencies (cardiac arrests). The goal is to improve leadership capabilities thanks to virtual environments. Participants wearing VR headsets will be tasked with leading a virtual clinical team through the process of resuscitating a cardiac arrest patient, answering questions from the program as they go along; the system currently comprises three separate resuscitation patient cases.
