KbPort and Kitware are excited to announce the release SimPulse™, a Virtual Patient Simulator With Real-Time Physiologic and Pharmacologic Responses. SimPulse™ utilizes Kitware’s Pulse Physiology Platform (Pulse) and integrates with SimEMR®, KbPort’s Simulated Electronic Medical Record Platform.
KbPort™ and Kitware are excited to combine the well-established training modules in SimEMR® and the accurate physiological patient feedback produced by the Pulse engine in a simple, intuitive user-interface, to provide an accurate context of patient care by presenting healthcare learners with real-time, physiological and pharmacological patient data required for clinical decision-making and documentation.
Well-suited for use in lab, classroom, and remote settings, SimPulse™ supports critical learning elements such as patient safety, medication administration, patient interactions, and patient vitals.
Removes the Requirement of Physical Access to Lab Spaces
SimPulse™ utilizes simulated patients to create patient context. Activities involving a simulated patient have historically required physical access to lab equipment and lab spaces to enable learners to collect and record patient data, such as vital signs. SimPulse™ eliminates this requirement by operating as a standalone, portable simulated patient.
Improves the Quality of Patient Contexts
SimPulse™ improves the fidelity of patient responses and reactions. The Pulse engine produces accurate physiological and pharmacological patient responses to external stimuli introduced by clinicians. This allows the clinical decision-making process and subsequent patient care to unfold naturally and accurately, eliminating the need for declared assumptions that can disrupt normal workflows and negatively impact learner experiences.
Supports High-volume Repetition without Increasing Operational Costs
In healthcare education, learner access to clinical pathways supported by hi-fidelity, in-lab experiences is often limited due to resource availability (physical and human) and associated costs. Therefore, learners have less opportunity for repetitive, hands-on training experiences. SimEMR® with SimPulse™ mitigates this issue as simulations require little-to-no staff support and no physical lab access and can be re-distributed to end-users on an unlimited basis.
