Webinar Recording: Healthcare Simulation in Higher Education

Learn about the benefits of healthcare simulation technology and how it prepares future healthcare professionals and improves patient outcomes through training.

The Center for Digital Education (CDE) hosted “Future-Ready Learning: How Technology and Simulation Are Transforming Healthcare Education.” This webinar looked at the ways that healthcare simulation solutions are being applied to give competitive advantage to the colleges, universities and teaching hospitals that adopt them.

Kecia Ray, senior fellow for the CDE, led this event and was joined by an expert panel that discussed:

  • What goes into a healthcare simulation center and how instructors are using the technology in their teaching
  • Barriers to healthcare simulation technology adoption and ways to overcome them
  • How the University of Miami is using its healthcare simulation center to prepare students for the workforce

Speakers include:

  • Jim Angelillo, VP of AVI-SPL’s Advanced Visualization Group
  • Paul Metcalf, Ph.D., development director, School of Nursing and Health Studies, University of Miami
  • Amar Patel, Doctor of Health and Chief Learning Officer, CAE Healthcare

Meet the AVI-SPL Medical Group

Operating roomLast week, I let you know that AVI-SPL’s medical team won two of 37 awards handed out by Commercial Integrator magazine at InfoComm 2013. Those wins are a validation of the effort the group has put into creating solutions that improve the delivery of care in healthcare facilities.

What makes AVI-SPL Medical so special among other solutions providers? Expertise and dedication are a couple of the reasons that spring to mind. For over a decade, the team has specialized  in audio and video  solutions for:

  • Integrated operating rooms
  • Intraoperative MRI surgical suites
  • Specialized procedure rooms
  • Interactive medical collaboration

AVI-SPL Medical helps remove silos that separate surgical services, IT departments, and telehealth outreach programs. With the ongoing analog-to-digital conversion taking place in forward thinking hospitals, we’re helping hospitals embrace the efficiency of IT/AV convergence, so that healthcare providers can benefit from networked audio and video in places like the OR.

In future posts, I’ll  look at how the medical group is addressing the needs of different healthcare constituencies, including hospitals, practitioners and IT.

Go to the AVI-SPL Healthcare page and take a look at the audio visual solutions that improve clinical care and information sharing.
