VRpatients for First Responders

You need an experienced team who can demonstrate sound clinical judgement and ensure the best possible outcomes for their patients.

But there are obstacles. 

Experience builds competency, but learning new skills in the field can compromise patient care.

It’s difficult to accurately gauge your team’s competency. Performance during assessments doesn’t always hold up under stressful, real life situations.

Even veteran First Responders can struggle when faced with uncommon situations that require unique skills. Not only is  this type of training very expensive, these scenarios are also hard to replicate.

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

Traditional training alone is insufficient. Abstract classroom exercises don’t prepare EMTs for stressful life & death situations or the complexities of actual patient care.

Real life training without real life consequences.

Like a flight simulator for pilots, VRpatients immerses students into lifelike, stress-inducing scenarios allowing them to interview, assess, diagnose and treat patients in real time.

It’s the closest you can come to real life training without real life consequences.

 

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 immerses 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 cogmitive functions of the brain, tapping into the most powerful aspects of retention.

Z

Increased Comprehension

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

Z

Better Performance

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

Virtual Reality creates 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.

Nothing will ever replicate a real scene, but adding in virtual reality and the 360 environment accustoms an EMT to what some of our scenes will look like. That way they have that prime recognition thinking. Although it’s virtual, they will know how to react.

Being a nurse and being able to take care of patients, it was real-life. Having the exact equipment there, being able take everything into account and program the protocols is really fantastic.

Training has always been based upon a practical simulation with a dummy or mannequin. With VR, you are immersed into the scene itself, so you really get that well-painted picture of what you’re actually walking into without having to be told by the instructor.
