Survey on credible practice of modeling and simulation in healthcare

With this invitation, we are asking you to complete a survey aimed to establish good practice guidelines in order to realize credibility of computational modeling and simulation (M&S) in healthcare. The survey can be found at:


The survey site will be available until February 15, 2015.

We sincerely appreciate your participation in this survey, which should take no longer than 10 minutes. Your participation is voluntary and your responses will be anonymous. You have been identified as a potential stakeholder in the M&S community. Your support will be instrumental in developing broadly applicable best practices in M&S, for their ultimate utilization in healthcare.

This survey is an initiative of the Committee on Credible Practice of Modeling & Simulation in Healthcare, to understand global and multidisciplinary perspectives in best practices to establish credibility of computational medicine. The Committee was formed as part of interactions within the Interagency Modeling and Analysis Group (IMAG) and Multiscale Modeling Consortium, which provide a platform to facilitate discussions between federal agencies in the United States and investigators within the United States and worldwide.

Please feel free to forward this invitation to others that may have an interest in providing their insight. Thank you for your support. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me by phone, +1 (216) 445 9523, or by e-mail, erdemira@ccf.org.
