At the IMSH 2015 HealthySim had a chance to interview Ryan Ribeira, CEO of SimX, and practicing resident physician in emergency medicine at Stanford. Ryan was showcasing SimX at the 5th Annual Serious Games and Virtual Environments Showcase and Arcade which took place at IMSH 2015 in New Orleans, LA and provided over 300 attendees demonstrations of more than 21 entries. The event, started by Dr. Eric B. Bauman, continues to attract exceptional talent from around the world and did a fantastic job of highlighting some serious technology advances in our field such as SimX – which walked away as the WINNER of the Small Business or Corporation category.
