AudioVisual Recording & Debriefing Systems for Healthcare Simulation

Medical Simulation A/V Recording Systems are specialized Learning Management Solutions used to display real-time clinical simulation activities to non-participating learners as well as to playback the recorded simulated learning experience for debriefing purposes. These unique learning management software systems are used for education and training purposes in healthcare simulation programs around the world. Such simulation based education (SBE) debriefing systems are now regularly robust cloud-based platforms which enable educators to stream, record, debrief, and annotate educational learning activities for mobile in-situ professionals, classroom sim lab students, and clinical research projects. Note that these Learning Management Systems for simulation audiovisual engagements, are different from AV Integrators or AV System Designers, who are usually experienced audio video hardware experts who plan, design, install, and maintain audio and video hardware equipment. While you can learn more about How A/V Recording Systems Work in Healthcare Simulation, here below we summarize the key corporations offering leading nursing simulation, surgical simulation, or otherwise simulation in healthcare programs with the latest in AV recording systems for contemporary clinical education and medical training!

Vosaic: Born out of the popular sports debriefing system Studiocode, Vosaic enables learners and their educators to record or upload videos from anywhere using their favorite devices, mark important moments on a video timeline, and leave comments on-the-spot or after the video is recorded. As well, Learners can react to feedback, make adjustments to their practice, and repeat the process as needed. Whether you’re using TeamSTEPPS or other instructional frameworks for this “performance discovery”, with Vosaic educators can easily customize what they want to mark in simulation videos for more effective debriefs. Moments marked with Vosaic are captured in full length-not just a single frame timestamp-allowing you to replay important moments in their entirety.

SMOTS (UK): Launched in 2005 with a 24 bed installation at Oxford Brookes School of Health and Social Care, SMOTS is a system of hardware and software that can easily and unobtrusively record video, audio and the vital signs readings of any medical procedure or simulation. The system records all material all of the time. This ensures that review and debrief is straightforward and when a particular clip arises that is worthy of retention for future training, it can be exported as an MPEG4 video. 

The SMOTS systems are widely used by dental and medical training establishments and have seen considerable success in the UK, across Europe and the Far East. Finally, the SMOTS system can also allow surgical procedures to be demonstrated to large numbers of consultants in a live operating/lecture theater connection with no hiring in of expensive and often cumbersome video conferencing facilities.

Noldus Information Technology: Noldus Information Technology was established in 1989 by Lucas Noldus, founder and CEO of the company.

Codimg: The real value of Codimg is its ability to recognize training elements and reproduce key moments, to provide genuine and immediate debriefing. It also helps users to reinforce and mark positive areas of their training, with a better assimilation and subsequent application of what they have learned, from the perspective of a passive observer. The system’s versatility and simplicity of extracting meaningful actions using Codimg’s iPad or iPhone application are other virtues highlighted by Dr. Beneharo Darias : “Once installation is complete it is simple to work with. We have been using the Codimg View application on an iPad Pro to capture video. This means instructors can use it anywhere in the medical environment – without having to ask IT for help setting up. Together with the main software, we mark the video using our own template: with customized categories and descriptors. This has replaced any type of subjective annotation in notebooks, which were being used previously, but which could not offer precise details. Through the recording of actions from various angles, we review tagged videos, comparing and organizing recorded actions.”
