Purpose: The purpose of this presentation is to discuss the development, current activities and future goals of the multi-disciplinary Idaho Simulation Network (ISN).  Background: In September of 2007 the Idaho Simulation Planning Committee convened the Idaho SimSummitt Meeting in Boise, Idaho.  The group included representatives from hospital agencies, academic institutions, administrators, and health care professions including nurses, physicians, and EMS providers.  A major goal of the committee was to propose a plan that would lead to orderly development and implementation of current and future simulation efforts throughout the state of Idaho.  The committee strongly supported the idea that large economies of scales could be realized by developing strategies to share resources.  Simulation equipment and implementation of simulation strategies, whether in health care facilities or academic environments, is expensive.  Participants agreed that working together for a common goal of developing and advancing simulation in the state of Idaho was a mechanism to decrease some of these expenses. Additionally, the group wanted to assure quality delivery of simulation experiences in the state. The group looked to successful simulation models previously developed in Oregon, California and Colorado. Process: The ISN was developed in a collaborative manner with shared knowledge and learning guiding activities of the network.  A fee structure for voluntary participation has been developed.  Academic institutions pay a pre-established rate.  Hospital participation fees relate to hospital size.  EMS agencies pay according to population of area served.  Clearly delineated membership opportunities and responsibilities have also been established by the ISN Steering Committee. Outcomes: The ISN currently has expanding membership from hospitals, academic institutions, health care organizations, and health care disciplines.  Activities presented by the ISN have included simulation workshops and conferences.  Membership allows access to monthly conference calls for dissemination of simulation development and activities in Idaho.  Also, workgroups focusing on simulation activities for Emergency Medical Systems and curricular issues have been established.  Both workgroups are developing strategic plans pertinent to the needs of the state. Conclusion and Recommendations: The Idaho Simulation Network is progressing toward many of its established goals.  As membership increases more and more organizations will benefit from this collaboration.  Continued development and monitoring of ISN activities are proposed and additional funding resources are being explored.
