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, is 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!

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”.
