Enhance Your Healthcare Simulation Debriefs Using Video with Vosaic Connect

vosaic-sim-av-recording-h1

Today some helpful content from our sponsor Vosaic! Debriefs are a crucial element in the medical simulation process. Harnessing video to increase learning opportunities and expand the value of debriefs is an excellent solution for many medical simulation scenarios. While many tools exist to help incorporate video analysis in the simulation process, they often involve expensive subscriptions, specialized A/V equipment and hardware, and complicated onboarding.

Vosaic, formerly Studiocode Group, launched Vosaic Connect in July, and has become an invaluable tool for many simulation centers, as it solves many of the traditional challenges of integrating video into learning situations. Vosaic Connect is a secure, cloud-based system that allows you to record video, instantly upload, and mark moments for review during debrief. This is all accomplished via an iOS app. Utilizing video means that skills can be captured, reviewed, and shared, strengthening learnings while increasing collaboration between learners and educators.

Features

When using Vosaic Connect for debrief scenarios, users can take advantage of a wide range of features to enhance learning.

  • Annotations – Add context to marked-up moments, create new moments with attached notes, and comment on moments from other users, adding depth to debrief scenarios
  • Multi-user timelines – Different users can contribute their markup to the timeline, creating a holistic snapshot of different reactions to the same training scenario
  • Mark-ups – Tag important moments during simulation or after, and then review and analyze them during debrief
  • Instant Upload – Capture video using our iOS app for instant upload or any other A/V equipment to pre-record video and upload later
  • Customization – Create your own markup forms with buttons to address your specific debrief needs

Simplified Technology

Solutions Using iPad and iPhone apps, Vosaic Connect removes traditional barriers to video utilization in simulation training. By functioning as the sole video capture solution, Vosaic Connect is a low-cost solution.

A Suite of Products

Vosaic Connect is the newest product from Vosaic, which has gained a name in the video analysis industry with its flagship product, Studiocode. Studiocode, in tandem with Vosaic iCoda, provide customizable, in-depth video analysis. Studiocode offers features for those looking for a more robust analysis solution.

Low Cost of Entry

Vosaic Connect offers a variety of plans that fit every level of user needs. You’ll even start with a 14-day free trial that will grant access to up to five users and 20 hours of video content. Vosaic Connect is simple to use, meaning a two-week trial allows you to explore how it can make a difference in your simulation exercises. A Product Always in Motion Vosaic Connect is built on user needs and experience. That means that new features are constantly being added, tested, and rolled out, based on feedback from current users. Vosaic wants to provide users with constant insight into that process on the Vosaic Blog.

Incorporating Vosaic Connect into training and medical simulation scenarios will enhance skills training for learners and educators.

Level 3 Healthcare Provides State-of-the-Art Medical Simulation Center A/V System Design & Installation

sim lab av integrators

Are you about to build or renovate a new simulation space? I cannot emphasize enough the importance of hiring an audiovisual design consultant who has previous experience working with medical simulation spaces. There is so much learning that takes place when trying to integrate A/V systems across a number of rooms, networks, and campuses. I cannot tell you how many consulting calls I have had with simulation champions around the world who have to completely redesign their entire A/V system after only a year of use because they did not work with an experience service provider from the get go. Just as we know that simulation education requires staff to receive special training, so too should we consider the special knowledge required to successfully put together the countless A/V systems our simulation spaces require. For the numerous reasons below, I do recommend you call on Level 3 Healthcare to explore their support when building (or rebuilding) your simulation space.

About Level 3 Healthcare

Level 3 Healthcare is a customer focused group of medical engineers trained in the process of integrating current audiovisual technology to medical work spaces, clinical training centers and simulation labs. Level 3 Healthcare provides advanced multimedia solutions in OR’s, ER’s, ED’s and medical education centers.

This healthcare engineering group has pioneered designs in large anatomy labs, dental training facilities, telehealth initiatives, live HD video distribution, 3-D surgical theaters, recording, archiving, content management and video media retrieval systems. Level 3 Healthcare’s core competency is integrating the myriad of medical, simulation, broadcast and professional technology into a seamless, easy to use system, curriculum or application.

Our approach is to work directly with our clients to understand their needs and curriculum and apply technology to improve efficiency, work flow and learning. Examples of our applications include; intraoperative surgical suites, digital O.R.’s, nursing simulation centers, procedure rooms, 3-D visualization facilities, clinical AV networks, campus-wide central recording systems and telemedicine video conferencing initiatives for collaboration and critical decision making.

5  Star Service

On Konsiderate.com, the community driven ratings and review platform for medical simulation products and services has a powerful testimonial from a Simulation Center Director in the United States who rated Level 3 Healthcare a “5/5 stars” saying:

“We used the services of Level 3 Healthcare to integrate a 10,000 Sq Ft. Simulation Center. I was very impressed with their initial responsiveness, and importantly their continued support since product installation. Level 3 worked with me to develop a system, as an end user i felt would work within our facility. This was achieved and they have helped create an incredible learning environment. In our case they were working with established systems which needed to work with additional technologies. The project was completed on time and it delivered expected outcomes. Very impressed and would suggest a discussion with them early in the development process. The whole team did a superb job.”

Supporting Community

Level 3 Healthcare are the back-to-back Platinum Sponsors of the annual SimGHOSTS event, which is taking place in Los Angeles this August 4th-7th. By sponsoring the event at such a high level for a second year in a row, Level 3 Healthcare continues to demonstrate their support of those operating medical simulation technology with the community and resources they need to succeed. Having spent time with the leadership of L3HC, I can attest that they are a dedicated and professional group to connect with.

SimView “A/V Capturing” from Laerdal & HealthStream

laerdal simview

SimView was released by SimVentures, a joint HealthStream & Laerdal project*, earlier this year at IMSH 2012, alongside the new SimPad, which continues their line of “SimCenter” based products and services.  Replacing the very-much-out-of-date Debrief Viewer “AVS” desktop, the new SimView release brings Laerdal back into the market for medical simulation debriefing systems. I had a chance to talk on camera with Jeff from Laerdal and learn more about the new SimView audiovisual capture and management hardware & software packages. (*Edit: 1/15/13 – SimView is co-developed & co-owned by both Laerdal & HealthStream.)

What immediately caught my attention about SimView was the Hi-Definition (HD) capability of this new a/v system.  At this time, only a handful of other products on the market support HD capture and playback.  HD has about 5x the resolution of standard definition digital recording platforms and so you really are getting a lot higher quality images with an HD based system. While the bandwidth necessary to operate a system will need to be much larger (and thus cost more for higher network and storage capabilities) the reality is that very soon standard definition will no longer exist as a visual medium, and so moving towards an HD-based system now will save your simulation program a lot of headache in the decade to come.  So again for quality and longevity and if you can afford it, I highly recommend looking into HD based a/v systems for your current and future medical simulation labs. The SimVentures Simview control system…
