In this session we will present multiple initiatives to the COVID-19 pandemic leveraging advanced training and simulation techniques to help a wide range of clinical, patient, and population health initiatives. One of our key projects in 2020 was assisting the VHA with a modification of their deployed their award-winning PPE mobile game for rapid personal protective equipment training. This specific version was created with COVID-specific information. Second, we will present an advanced initiative that goes beyond training and operations with a modification of an NIH grant to provide COVID imaging of lung tissue for AI-based review and blockchain-based rollout and verification of data streams. Finally, we will showcase the Trusted Ops platform from Kant Consulting, NEMA, IAEM, and Microsoft which was modified from its usual disaster management (hurricanes) deployment to provide information to over 100,000 users on population health and current infection rates from a number of sources, including blockchain-based information streams in one unified portal for easy access. These initiatives provided advanced, rapid-response through coordinated efforts during this time of pandemic and national / international scale training deployments..
