Remedy Simulation Group: Remedy Simulation Group is a healthcare simulation industry leader in nursing simulation aids and also in the medical contract manufacturing field. The company believes that medical simulation plays an important role in the future of healthcare, and provides customers with two distinct ways to interface with the company: medical simulation training products and contract manufacturing for simulation products. Ultimately, Remedy Sim’s innovative products help learners studying in the medical disciplines to develop important and necessary skills by providing tactile, realistic scenarios for learning.
Military Healthcare Simulation: Military healthcare simulation is a type of clinical simulation that uses education and training principles to help members of the military and related professionals gain the skills needed in the field. Often, this guidance comes in the form of military combat simulation training, which can be accomplished in a number of ways. From the use of virtual reality simulation headsets to manikins and standardized patients, military simulation is able to create realistic scenarios that military personnel must be ready and prepared for. These scenarios cover a wide range of experiences and focus relating to armed forces-based knowledge.
EHR Tutor: EHR Tutor is an industry-leading academic EHR training program built by nurse educators for nurse educators. The solution was originally created by Diane Yeager, RN, a 16-year nursing education veteran who has always been an advocate for the use of technology in education. She also created the website FreeNurseTutor.com while working as an Instructor, but when she started to explore the current Electronic Health Record Systems (EHRs) available for nursing and allied health schools, she realized there were no truly affordable, user-friendly options on the market that were flexible enough to fit the needs of different programs and teaching styles.
Labor Simulator: A labor simulator is a lifelike patient Manikin used in Healthcare Simulation, which can realistically mimic a woman going through the process of labor and delivery. These complex Manikins can also be known as a childbirth simulator, Maternal Fetal simulator, Obstetric Simulator, birth simulator, or birthing simulator. Healthcare professionals who focus on education and training should understand the high value of labor simulation for learners and their future patients, the technical aspects of labor simulators, and the various offerings available.
Lucid Reality Labs: Lucid Reality Labs is a leading immersive technology consulting, design and development company with the primary focus on creating immersive XR training and simulations for healthcare, medtech, pharma, aerospace, and defense. The company creates VR simulation solutions with elements of gamification for training, education, and collaboration scenarios. Through these scenarios, users can explore, interact, learn and build skills as well as master procedures attached to the role in a risk-free, controlled environment.
Inovus Medical: Inovus Medical is a designer and manufacturer of surgical training technologies. Based in St. Helens, United Kingdom, the company was founded in 2012 with a clear purpose – to improve surgical care through connected training. According to the company, at the heart of everything Inovus does are a set of established core values of affordable, accessible, and functional technologies. With this in mind, Inovus Medical plans to become the world’s partner for surgical training.
Metaverse in Healthcare: What is considered to be a network of 3D virtual worlds designed to focus on social connection, the metaverse is a place parallel to the physical world that is being used to help facilitate healthcare simulation training. Through the use of virtual reality technology, learners are able to enter the metaverse to access education and training materials from anywhere, at any time. This technology is helping to revolutionize the way medical education is taught, and more academic institutions are beginning to incorporate this method of learning.
Healthcare Simulation Organizations: Healthcare simulation organizations exist across the globe, and range in focus from specialties like pediatric simulation to virtual reality simulation. Together, clinical simulation organizations are providing a means for simulationists and learners worldwide to have access to clinical simulation updates and network with the medical simulation community. Membership in a healthcare simulation organization can also open doors to clinical simulation opportunities and access to medical simulation research. There are numerous other benefits to joining a healthcare simulation organization.
HealthySimulation.com has direct media partnerships with many of the organizations listed on this page. These media partnerships allow for an exchange of healthcare simulation news and information to promote awareness and opportunity by the global medical simulation community to key resources. All of our media partners are key non-profit organizations that we highly recommend the community learn and when appropriate, join! Don’t see your name on the list? Email us!
Simulation Technician: A Simulation Technician is a healthcare simulation professional that is responsible for providing support across several technical areas of medical simulation. Some companies and institutions also refer to Simulation Technicians as Simulation Operations Specialists or Simulation Technologists. These professionals come from a variety of backgrounds, meaning that some may have healthcare experience while others come with strong computer and audiovisual experience.
Simulation Educator: A Healthcare Simulation Educator is a clinical simulation professional whose responsibility is to develop and implement clinical simulation-based education designed to enhance patient safety and quality during healthcare delivery. Also referred to as a Clinical Simulation Educator, Simulation Clinical Educator, Simulation Facilitator, and Simulation Faculty, this position is extremely important across the field of healthcare simulation. In addition to designing the plan of delivery for healthcare simulation instruction, Clinical Simulation Educators also help coordinate a number of key components of medical simulation programs delivered by either a healthcare simulation center or an institution or facility.
