IVS recently shared a new video showcasing VALT, aka the Video Audio Learning Tool, for Healthcare Simulation programs. Valt is an innovative software solution that enables users to be able to create and manage their own video database.

About VALT

Video is a proven tool to better educate, train, connect and protect organizations everywhere, which is why IVS has developed Valt. This powerful tool helps organizations increase the use of video to improve the effectiveness of a wide variety of programs. Valt can scale to support any number of cameras, users, and departments while the intuitive browser-based interface provides each user with a unique and secure experience. The application empowers users to quickly and easily view, record and manage video events without extensive IT support headaches.

The Valt solution is being used in a wide array of applications including Medical Simulations, Interview Recording, Corporate Training, Treatment Sessions, Lecture Video Recording, Police Interrogations, Government Meetings, Clinical Observation and many other simulation-based and active learning applications.

The Valt application has been designed from the ground up to allow users to easily view live audio-video sessions in a secure fashion. VALT employs enterprise-class video streaming technology allowing for the connection of up to 50 HD IP video cameras and capability to serve out hundreds of simultaneous video streams from a single Valt server appliance. Rooms are displayed in an easy to find list and are labeled according to user preference. PTZ control is performed via mouse by simply clicking in the video window. Users are able to use and create presets to help quickly position PTZ cameras.

Observers are able to create “markers” during the recording process which indexes important video points allowing users to quickly access important events. Markers may be named or created via drop down box. Observers are able to “talk back” to students/clinicians via computer microphone or USB headset by simply clicking on the talk icon in the video window when optional talk back hardware is purchased. User rights allow a unique login ID for students, faculty and administrators providing for customizable security rights for viewing, recording and playback.

A matrix view allows the observer to view up to 9 simultaneous sessions on a single display. Client software runs in browser simplifying viewing and rollout of software upgrades. All major web browsers are supported including Apple and tablet versions, letting users use Valt to observe live or recorded video anywhere.

The IVS team let HealthySim know they will soon be sharing a helpful case study of Mt. Royal’s Nursing, Child Development Studies, and Athletics Therapy teams use VALT to help them improve their learning outcomes — so stay tuned!

SimCore Provides Cloud-Based Simulation Program Management Software

simcore

Continuing our IMSH 2016 Video Interview series today we take a closer look at SimCore, which provides a program management cloud based software platform as well as expertise in simulation center planning and design. Watch our interview with SimCore Founder Brian Gillet MD, who has directed numerous simulation programs and brings his experience to this comprehensive program to learn more! (Note: Sadly there was a bit too much brightness on the computer screen during the interview to see all the software features so be sure to check out the website to learn more through the link below).

Fostering Excellence in Healthcare Performance:

SimCore’s mission is to advance clinical simulation by providing highly efficient tools to develop and deploy scenarios, manage workflow, support training and implementation, and to enable cross-disciplinary collaboration within the simulation community. The SimCore System is 100% web-based and designed to be IT and network friendly. Simcore was built from the ground up to provide a powerful tool than can be securely accessed from anywhere on any device.

Create: With the cloud-based Scenario Designer, easily standardize, create, edit and run your scenarios anywhere — even from a smart phone. Hundreds of radiographs, ECG’s, educational diagrams and real-motion ultrasounds are available for integration into your scenarios through the Media Gallery – or upload your own. The Scenario Designer allows for standardizing template elements across all of your scenarios.

Schedule: Efficiently schedule and coordinate simulation sessions within an institution or across a healthcare network with the Calendar. Integration with other calendar programs such as Outlook, iCal, Google and smart devices occurs in the background, sending calendar invites to participants, instructors and helpers.

Run: Serve your scenario content—such as clinical history, labs, radiographs, and critical actions—to a screen within the screen- or mobile device-simulation control room during live sessions. Integrate a digital assessment form into any simulation and track participant performance in real time.

Track & Analyze: The system calculates and normalizes ratings so that you can easily track learner or instructor progress as well as validate and improve scenarios. Display valuable metrics with charts and graphs for high yield reporting.

Connect: Harness the power of collective wisdom by browsing and importing scenarios across the SimCore community. As others create scenarios, they become available for users to customize without overwriting the original—even revisions can be imported.
