Intelligent Video Solutions Brings Robust A/V Recording & Debriefing Systems To Healthcare Simulation

ivs medical simulation debriefing system

Intelligent Video Solutions (IVS), has provided numerous industries a/v recording systems since 2001. IVS develops software that enables end users to leverage the power of video to increase their programs effectiveness. Driven by a goal to deliver excellence in all phases of a project and backed by 15 years of experience, the team at Intelligent Video Solutions suggests they can meet any challenge — which is why they have started expanding into healthcare simulation.

About IVS and VALT

IVS develops software that enables end users to leverage the power of video to increase their programs’ effectiveness. Driven by the goal to deliver excellence in all phases of a project and backed by 15 years of experience the team at Intelligent Video Solutions can meet any challenge.

IVS suggests they approach the simulation video observation, recording and debriefing challenge from a different perspective because they have taken feedback and developed a new tool to address an old challenge. At it’s core their VALT solution is an incredibly simple but powerful tool because the interface can be learned in minutes and the basic observation and recording tasks are often picked up intuitively without any extensive training or tech support.

With VALT you can scale to any number of cameras and users all while incurring no per client, confusing ‘pay per feature’ license structures or budget crushing annual maintenance contracts. They have also built in critical data security measures and integrate into your existing user management and authentication systems to efficiently manage multiple departments, programs and ever changing groups of users. Plus, different departments and programs can share hardware while keeping live sessions and video assets securely separate. The system is scalable allowing one camera or hundreds of cameras.

The VALT system can capture content being displayed on virtually any screen (vital sign monitors, software screen, mobile device data) and synchronize it seamlessly with HD video cameras arranged in many different configurations to match changing room configuration or scenarios. To make high volume OSCE prep rounds a breeze, the recordings can even be triggered from the rooms with student id cards or scheduled in advance. VALT also allows supervisors to observe & talk back into simulation rooms from any authorized computer.

They’ve also enabled their clients to literally take video recording into their own hands with our BEAM application. This iOS app can turn an Apple device into a truly mobile AV capture point that can provide unique in-situ perspectives or record simulations out in the field. The same powerful security, data capture and sharing features come along to ensure the video is still easy to manage and secure.

Aviation’s Black Boxes Are Coming to Healthcare Training

black boxes in healthcare

This summer I was thrilled to provide the SESAM closing plenary address where I shared the past, present and future of healthcare simulation — and made direct calls for healthcare to integrate a “blackbox” into healthcare. The argument is simple: recording devices have been successfully improving aviation training and performance outcomes since the 1970s — and in a day and age where police body cameras are becoming affordable for every single officer, clearly healthcare is on a similar path. Today here is more support for such a conversation from Richard Corder, Partner at Wellesley Partners which provides Executive Coaching in Boston and throughout the Northeast:

There are many industries, other than healthcare, that work in complex environments where the actions of one human can impact the life of another. Healthcare leaders need to acknowledge the reality that we have much to learn from other industries. While we cannot mimic others entirely, the same general operating principles (including mindfulness that serves as the overarching organizational spirit) that are the foundation for other high reliability organizations (i.e.: aviation, nuclear power) can work just as well to prevent harm from occurring in health systems.

One example of a safe practice or technology that could shared across industries is the in-flight data recorder found on all commercial airliners. It was because of the in-flight data recorder on board the two Boeing 747s that crashed into one another on the island of Tenerife in 1977 that we learned so much about the decisions and behaviors resulting in that game-changing airline disaster.  The time stamped voice commands of those at the controls were captured in real-time, and provided a blueprint of what “not to do” along with a snapshot of what needed to be changed.

Now envision this: following a surgical procedure, regardless of the outcome, we have the opportunity to review every piece of data related to the procedure.
