During this session attendees will see insights into two different Breakaway Games projects aimed at improving mass casualty response by hospital systems. See how two different games, developed by the same company, on the same topic were approached to make unique use of their core-game genres and the needs of their users.

Hospital Incident Command, is a web delivered multi-player game-based training solution that provides civilian hospitals /healthcare systems with a virtual capability to train personnel in the HICS processes/protocols for operational and mass casualty incidents. Target users include civilian hospital managers, emergency planners, emergency responders, public health officials, physicians, nurses, or everyone who may be involved in the planning & management of a hospital’s response to a Mass Casualty Incident (MCI).

While Hospital Incident Command focuses on a strategy-game like sim-hospital approach, Rampart, another Breakaway project is more individual player focused. Rampart, recreates the high stress, high stakes environment of a trauma center. The player completes a shift as an Emergency Room physician. They must make important diagnosis and treatment calls for multiple virtual patients in a tight time frame. This task is complicated by the range of realistic distractions that make a trauma center a nightmare of multi-tasking.
