SimulationIQ Enables Use of Smart Phone Cameras to Record Simulation Experiences | IMSH 2017 Video Interview

simbrowser for healthcare simulation recordings

SimulationIQ unveiled several new innovative simulation products at IMSH 2017, and HealthySimulation was on hand to interview them first hand with this video to show you all the latest! It seems like a no-brainer, but why haven’t we taken more advantage of the cameras we all carry in our smart phones as a means to capture in-situ simulated experiences? SimulationIQ is creating new tools to enable us all to do just that! Check out our video below to see the system in action:

SimBrowser is a secure, permission-based web application that allows users to view their live or recorded simulation training videos. SIMULATIONiQ SimBrowser is a web-based application that allows users to view live or recorded videos for all standalone SIMULATIONiQ products deployed within their institution. It provides easy access for instructors and administrators to monitor their medical training units from anywhere, on any device, within their institution’s network. SIMULATIONiQ SimBrowser is compatible with EMS’ SIMULATIONiQ Training in Motion (SIMULATIONiQ Mobile and SIMULATIONiQ Portable), an ideal solution for in-situ and on the go training environments; and SIMULATIONiQ One Room, a powerful recording and debriefing solution for clinical simulation management in one-room environments.

iSimulate Launches REALITi at IMSH 2017 – HealthySim Video Interview Series

isimulate realiti

Launching our this year’s annual video interview series from the International Meeting for Simulation in Healthcare today we’re sharing our interview with iSimulate, who showcased their upcoming video recording system REALITi! There will be plenty of IMSH Trade Show floor interviews coming out over the next few weeks so stay tuned to our free simulation newsletter to catch them all!

REALITi is a new simulation ecosystem incorporating a patient simulator and video debriefing in a single system. REALITi launches May 4th and provides live stream wireless video, integrated live voting, dynamic 12 Lead ECG, mimicked proprietary monitors and defibrillators (like ZOLL), and a system that can grow and adapt with your simulation needs. REALITi was one of HealthySim’s “Top Fav” Products of IMSH 2017 so its definitely worth checking out!

Helpful Thoughts on In Situ Simulation

in situ medical simulation advantages

Today a helpful list of advantages, disadvantages, safety issues and tips, success strategies, and evidence for In Situ Simulation by the blogging team at Life in the Fast Lane. Life in the Fast Lane is comprised of Australasian critical care physicians and nurses exploring the changing world of eLearning, emergency medicine, critical care and toxicology through clinical cases, fictionalized anecdotes and medical satire. Below is an excerpt of the list they created:


  • In situ simulation is simulation that takes place in the actual working environment and involving those who work there
  • As such, it is distinct from ‘center-based simulation’, which takes place in a separate simulation center
  • In situ simulation may involve any simulation modality (e.g. mannikin-based, simulated patients, task trainers, hybrid simulations), be high or low fidelity, and may be scheduled or performed impromptu (will appropriate prebriefing)

Education Management Solutions Develops ‘MobilSim’ For In-Situ Sim Assessment


Many of the Healthcare Simulation vendors who support the Learning Management System (LMS) and/or AudioVisual capture systems have been developing mobile versions of their product-lines.  Education Management Solutions recently launched this video on youtube to demonstrate the benefits of their mobile system called “MobilSIM”.

The EMS website states “MobilSIM™ is a powerful, web-based, easy to set-up and use mobile solution for recording, integrating with high-fidelity simulators, collecting data, and assessing performance from any location. MobilSIM is ideal for in-situ, on-the-go simulation training. Competitively priced, the MobilSIM lightweight custom carrying case contains all the components needed for recording and debriefing a simulation session, managing participants, scoring, and generating reports.”

MobilSIM Benefits:

  • Plug ‘n play solution allows easy and quick set-up.
  • Affordably priced, compact, light-weight, and easily portable.
  • View video and assessment checklist on a single screen.
  • Ideal for training in in-situ human patient simulation environments.

MobilSIM includes:

  • One laptop for hosting the web application and video storage.
  • Two mini HD (720p) pan/tilt/zoom IP cameras with built-in microphone.
  • One wireless network switch.
  • Self-instructional guide.
  • One portable carrying case.

Do you own a MobilSIM? We’d love to learn more about it so share some comments in the article post!
