Medicaid Equity Simulation ProjectAbout the Training
The Ohio Department of Medicaid is working with a number of Ohio’s medical and health sciences colleges to improve the care and quality of life of Medicaid enrollees. The Medicaid Equity Simulation Project uses virtual reality, three-dimensional multimedia sensory environments, as an educational tool to improve Medicaid providers’ cultural competency and increase awareness of social determinants of health.
These educational experiences highlight the importance of engaging providers in first-person active learning. The goal is to provide patients with improved quality of care through acceptance and understanding.
