B-Line Medical Release: In-Situ Simulation Gains Popularity; Educators Can Now Turn Any Location Into Simulation Lab


1/10/2013 9:45:50 AM

WASHINGTON, Jan. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- B-Line Medical® has introduced an Ultraportable version of its popular SimCapture® product to meet the need for in-situ and other high-fidelity simulation experiences in healthcare institutions. As more medical educators test mobile device pilot programs, break down interprofessional silos, and uncover latent, environmental patient safety issues, there remain fewer and fewer reasons why any space should not be able to become a simulation lab.

Current medical simulation best practices encourage what's known as debriefing: an opportunity for the learner to perform and practice self-assessment and critical thinking. Video-assisted debriefing allows both the learner and the teacher to take an objective view of what transpired in a given simulation. SimCapture's unrivaled recording and review capability, combined with powerful assessment and reporting tools, has been adopted by top medical programs such as Mayo Clinic, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Johns Hopkins University, and Stanford University.

With Ultraportable's all-inclusive audiovisual hardware setup and a secure hardcase containing cameras, cables, and various adapters, any location can now be set up to record in minutes. Like the standard version of SimCapture, Ultraportable is able to centralize data and video seamlessly via SimBridge, meaning learners can debrief on the spot, or from any networked location.

"SimCapture Ultraportable gives medical educators an affordable, foolproof recording solution. Having learners perform simulations in real environments has endless potential for not only training, but also quality assurance, and instrument introduction or piloting. While being in a dedicated simulation space is helpful, there's nothing like operating in the real environment: your environment," says David Ramsay, President of B-Line Medical.

SimCapture Ultraportable can turn any environment into a sound stage for recording, and requires no audiovisual or technical expertise. Weighing less than 20 pounds, it is capable of serving as the recording solution for multiple spaces, or can be designated to a dedicated space and networked with other SimCaptures.

B-Line Medical is a digital solutions firm focused on the capture, debriefing and assessment of medical training and events. B-Line Medical specializes in the delivery of robust, yet easy to use web-based solutions that have helped over 200 top hospitals, medical schools and nursing programs in 11 countries operate and manage their training and QA programs more effectively.
