The Knowledge of Innovation
This unique capability is based on MMI’s strategic association with the Faculty of Medicine of McGill University, one of Canada’s best-known institutions of higher education and one of the leading universities in healthcare education in the world. The McGill University’s state-of-the-art Steinberg Centre for Simulation and Interactive Learning is globally recognized and fully accredited by the Royal College of Physicians of Canada, the Society for Simulation in Healthcare and the American College of Surgeons.
Daily challenges inherent to contemporary healthcare systems require preparing for acute events, through personal and teamwork practice with an emphasis on communication skills, human factors awareness, and technical skills proficiency. We believe that there is a direct correlation between optimal medial simulation training and the improved performance of health care professionals.
MMI’s role is designed to serve as a catalyst in shaping an integrated and sustainable approach to health care, with specific impact on the key issues of the participants’ organizations and communities through meaningful academic research and innovation. The main objective is to reshape the way our clients interpret and respond to today’s complex healthcare issues.
We believe that individuals have the right to put their health first. Through its participation in this private insurance based enterprise, coordinating the delivery of medical second opinions by qualified physicians, MMI is helping to ensure that patients get the right diagnosis, the best treatment options, and have increased access to advanced knowledge within the Canadian healthcare system.
Electronically coordinated via the MMI MSO Coordination Centre using secure web-based tele-health technology, MSO services provide patients and their own treating physicians, with access to independent medical reviews, diagnosis and treatment recommendations on complex medical issues across a range of medical specialities.
