A multi institutional and interdisciplinary team to innovate health management

LASALUS is a multi-institutional and interdisciplinary project, co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme, which is aimed at developing a postgraduate degree, in a distance-learning format, in Healthcare Management. LASALUS will be implemented throughout Latin-America, with the utilization of a simulator (virtual hospital) which, apart from being one of the products of the project, is a completely innovative technological development.

Once LASALUS Project finishes, after a three-year development period (October 2015 to October 2018):

Once the implementation period has finished, the sustainability of LASALUS Project will be granted, since managerial simulation through information and communication technologies (ICT), as in any simulation-based learning, is the most innovative method in modern teaching. There are no simulators in the field of Healthcare Management teaching that comprise and include every single stage of said management: planning, organization, direction, evaluation, control and accountability.

Consequently, it will be both of scientific and economic interest, to all partner Universities (Latin American and European ones), to contribute to the growth and upgrade of their LASALUS simulator, which will have a great demand for "utilization hours of the healthcare management simulator" from teaching and healthcare provider organizations as well as financing and healthcare regulatory bodies.
