WorldPoint Center for Healthcare Simulation Developed in Partnership With MedicalShipment
While on a recent MedicalShipment.com sponsored trip to Chicago to learn more about the Pyxis MedStation 4000 (coming out soon), I was also invited to the WorldPoint offices to tour their new Center For Healthcare Simulation. Randall Heyde, Communications & Social Media Specialist, introduces us to the new learning space in the video below:
“Welcome to our new simulation lab, The WorldPoint Center for Healthcare Simulation. This Center was created around the idea of a multi-purpose facility that would highlight the training solutions that WorldPoint offers.
Our partnership with MedicalShipment.com has allowed that idea to become a reality. From hospital beds and nightstands, to crash carts and accessories MedicalShipment has supplied us with all the necessary tools to create a realistic hospital setting. We have obstetrics, hospital, and emergency room areas furnished by MedicalShipment, with specific areas for auscultation and station trainers as well. WorldPoint’s wide variety of manikins that range from low to high fidelity are showcased in each of the areas.
The Simulation Lab really allows WorldPoint to extend its reach to each and every one of our customers. Our state of the art debriefing system, which is powered by KBPort, allows us to provide demonstrations to our costumers via the internet. (Learn more about KBPort here). We have three 360 degree pan, tilt, zoom cameras that allow the customer to view the demonstrations from multiple vantage points. The space also allows for WorldPoint staff training. The WorldPoint Center for Healthcare Simulation allows our staff to stay up to date with training and current techniques to ensure that we are able to provide the most memorable service to our customers.
Soon we will be offering the space to our customers to utilize in their own training. For more information regarding the WorldPoint Center for Healthcare Simulation visit www.WorldPoint.com!”
