VRpatients for Emergency Responders

Staffing is an ongoing challenge. You need to be able to objectively assess the clinical judgement of new hires to ensure their clinical competency. You also need an in-house continuing education program that allows you to deploy rapid response training at any time, from anywhere, and assess the mastery of these new skills.

But there are obstacles. 

Resources are limited. I am now doing more with a decreased staff and budget, and travel can be costly.

In-person training has become more difficult with social distancing requirements and COVID-19 precautions. I need to keep my staff in the field, where they are needed most.


Identifying the competency of new hires is challenging. Demonstrating knowledge & skills during an interview can be a poor predictor of performance in the field.

Traditional SIM training can’t be done remotely. Not only do classroom-based sim exercises lack the stress of real life & death situations, group training has become nearly impossible.

What makes VRpatients so different?

VRpatients gives you access to limitless case scenarios that awaken your students’ intellect. Our intuitive authoring tool has the unmatched ability to create content tailored to your specific training objectives. This can be done by modifying existing content or by building new scenarios altogether.

The VRpatients application also features:

A better way to educate, train & assess EMS providers

VRpatients offers many advantages that traditional SIM training alone cannot provide.

Consistent training: Using protocols predetermined by the trainer, the platform reacts to the chosen course of treatment in real time, providing a consistent experience from user to user.

Objective assessments: VRpatients provides a computer generated assessment of the user’s treatment decisions immediately at the conclusion of each case, eliminating trainer subjectivity.


Limitless case scenarios: The intuitive medical case authoring tool allows users the unmatched ability to modify existing content or create new content tailored to specific training objectives.

Increased efficiency & reduced costs: Virtual reality training can be done wherever there is WiFi, and in a shorter timeframe.

Improved Retention, Better Outcomes

Virtual reality simulations immerse users into real life, stress-inducing environments and clinical case scenarios that can’t be replicated with traditional education, training and assessments. The result? Lower costs, decreased turnover and optimal patient care.


Improved Retention

VR engages the senses, emotions and cognitive functions of the brain, tapping into the most powerful aspects of retention.


Increased Comprehension

VR-based teaching makes abstract content more concrete and easier to understand.


Better Performance

Those trained with VR are able to perform procedures more accurately, confidently and with fewer mistakes.

Virtual Reality simulations create an enriched, sensory experience that leads to improved knowledge retention. A study conducted at Miami Children’s Health System showed the retention level a year after a VR training session can be close to 80%, compared to 20% retention after only one week with traditional training.
