Echo Healthcare Announces Partnership Agreement with CrossBraining Video Training Tool
On June 1, 2021, Echo Healthcare Inc. announced that the company has signed an agreement with CrossBraining Inc, paving way for an advanced breakthrough in both education and simulation. CrossBraining is a mobile web application that improves skill retention and drives deeper learning. This partnership aligns with Echo Healthcare’s mission to redefine service and innovation by improving patient outcomes through training, education and technology. After being founded by a group of passionate simulation experts who bring over 40 years of experience into the marketplace, the healthcare simulation company continues to take strides ever-improved patient safety across the industry.
“Echo Healthcare’s mission of saving lives through technology makes us natural partners. I’m so proud to get CrossBraining into the hands of medical students across North America.” said Josh Nichols, CEO of CrossBraining.
The CrossBraining web application achieves this by first having instructors create a segmented lesson. Learners then capture a video and voiceover narration about what they have learned in each step. This brings learning to life and gives instructors short, authentic videos of student learning.
“As a former critical care paramedic educator, I am very excited to partner with CrossBraining and provide our clients with an advanced product suite for enhancing their medical training. We aim to save lives through innovation, education and technology and CrossBraining represents each of those categories uniquely. This partnership truly takes simulation training and education to the next level, and we couldn’t be more thrilled,” said Kevin King, CEO of Echo Healthcare.
Commenting on the partnership, HealthySimulation.com Founder/CEO Lance Baily said “As a film-maker I can attest to the power of video editing to provide powerful learning opportunities — the need to plan ahead, the need to record in an efficient manner, and the repetition of cutting scenes together really work to reinforce training. I am extremely impressed with this learning methodology, which I feel turns the current use of video-capture technology for debriefing kind of “on its head” so to speak, making the learner the one who has to use the video systems to demonstrate knowledge — genius!”.
