B-Line Medical was formed in 2005 around the development of their first product Clinical Skills, a standardized patient encounter audiovisual and management system. Since then B-Line Medical has expanded their product base to include other solutions which support learning in healthcare simulation learning environments. Their systems are used in Nursing, Medical, Allied Health, Hospitals and Military institutions around the world. Scroll down for the latest B-Line news!
Audiovisual recording and real-time playback of unfolding simulation scenarios is an important aspect of medical simulation. While a single learner may be engaged with a manikin during a high-fidelity patient simulation, the rest of their group can watch and evaluate the learner performance without entertaining “tunnel vision”. Playback of simulation in healthcare experiences helps learners gain a “birds-eye” perspective of the simulated scenario they just experienced providing them with an expanded understanding with regards to their patient’s care.
B-Line Medical, the first to bring web-based video capture and debriefing to the healthcare simulation industry, has been dedicated to improving health outcomes for almost 15 years. They provide the most trusted and easy-to-use web-based platforms to help healthcare learners, educators and providers enhance patient safety and improve the delivery of care. A leading choice, their SimCapture platform is installed in 500+ institutions in 35 countries. With user-friendly interfaces, robust technical support, meaningful data reporting systems, its no wonder!
IN 2018, the company launched SimCapture Pro, a game changer for healthcare simulation that offers a fully cloud-based software platform, remarkably small onsite audiovisual footprint, and affordable subscription pricing. They also launched B-Line Medical launched SimCapture EMR so educators can now build robust EMR forms directly in SimCapture’s Checklist Builder. Tabbed layouts, multiple types of form fields and multi-column options allow end-users to replicate any popular EMR. Users can leverage an existing EMR template to get started or build their own.
B-Line Medical’s SimCapture platform is a scalable solution that enhances simulation and standardized patient center operations and management. It allows for secure, high quality video capture with data integration, immediate debriefing and robust reporting. The SimCapture platform automates the manual and time consuming processes involved with running, evaluating and reporting on simulated events.
B-Line Medical’s LiveCapture platform is a solution focused on improving patient safety and enhancing quality improvement programs. LiveCapture records multiple video feeds, medical device data and QI checklists in a single, hospital network-based interface for real-time or post event debriefing and analysis. LiveCapture is in use at 70% of the 2017-2018 U.S. News & World Report best hospitals including Mayo Clinic, Barnes Jewish Hospital, and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
B-Line Medical also offers numerous additional services including simulation center design consulting, audiovisual design and vendor management, onsite or web-based training, custom training videos and documentation, data migration and population, and a robust and on-call technical support team.
B-Line Medical supports the development of medical simulation through their attendance and sponsorship of leading simulation-based conferences like SimGHOSTS, collaborative relationships with manikin manufacturers, as well as a robust and on-call technical support team.
