Introduction

Kiran Hebbar, MD, FCCM, is the Medical Director of Safety & Simulation at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine at Emory University School of Medicine. Through simulation-based clinical system testing (SbCST), Dr. Hebbar’s team is working to improve the bedside clinical practice of medical staff, test and improve systems of care in situ, and develop novel tools and systematic approaches to assessing safety of clinical spaces. By diagnosing and correcting the system of care before integrating and training teams into practice, patient care is more safe, efficient and reflects work-as-done state.

Dr. Hebbar’s team has developed novel tools for integrating simulation into designs of a new facility as well as renovations in existing clinical spaces. In 2019, Dr. Hebbar led simulation-based hospital design testing (SbHDT) for the Arthur M. Blank Hospital. This was the largest “cardboard city” pre-construction simulation project conducted to date with a focus on evidence-based design principles.
