High Schools and Colleges are rapidly moving further on the clinical education curricula

Education matters in every field and level. And when we’re talking about healthcare professions, it is very important to provide the best basis to the future caregivers.

Rio Grande Valley has made an example by adopting the latest technologies to improve clinical education and experience, “We have been using the Body Interact software for about 2 months now and have seen it be very beneficial to our students.” (March 2018), M. Ortega, LVN Instructor at Rio Grande Valley College

If you are an educator on a community college or high school, and are looking to improve your students’ education, talk to us!
Body Interact has a standard library of clinical education scenarios with different difficulty levels that suits the needs of your students’ community.

Not sure about this?
No worries. We can put you in contact with some of the end-users that are already using Body Interact as a tool to empower knowledge and training.

Improving patient safety using Body Interact on Nursing Simulation

Early this month, Toronto, Canada, has received the conference of the International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning (INACSL).
INACSL is a global leader in transforming practice to improve patient safety through excellence in healthcare simulation.

Body Interact team has attended this event that gathers not only the newest innovations in simulation but also the opportunity to network with nurses, educators and experts, from several parts of the globe.

Once again it was a pleasure to participate, we hope to see you all next year, at Phoenix, AZ!

Body Interact has a new user interface

At Body Interact Inc. we are always trying to step it up and go further.
Thinking about our end-users, our latest version has launched some new usability features.
We believe it will be even easier to navigate between menus, or to move away medical objects, lab tests and exams.

If you would like to give it a try, schedule a demo.
We will gladly give you a complete tour!

Heart Failure 2018: “classical repertoire, modern instruments” like Body Interact

During these sunny days, the city of Vienna, in Austria, has hosted the Heart Failure 2018’s edition under the theme “classical repertoire, modern instruments”.

Once again this event, promoted by the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), has integrated Body Interact as an innovative educational technology tool available, for all attendees, in the Virtual Case Area.

Heart Failure is the world’s leading event, for experts in cardiology, to discuss strategies for a universal approach towards prevention and the treatment of heart failure.
Body Interact’s cardiology scenarios were featured in several sessions presented by ESC members and were the starting point for great clinical discussions that gathered not only knowledge and expertise, but also teamwork and networking among all attendees.
Thanks to all that visited us, we hope to see you again in a near future!

Our special acknowledgement to Dr. Baudry,  Dr. Flammer, Dr. Fraczek-Jucha, Dr. Grapsa, Dr. Tolppanen, Dr. Vergaro, and to the ESC team and staff.
It was a pleasure to see you and to work with you again!

Portuguese Nursing and Midwifery regulator “Taking care of the future” with Body Interact

V National Congress of the Portuguese Order of Nurses

Last April Body Interact integrated, for the first time, the Congress of the Portuguese Order of Nurses (national Nursing and Midwifery regulator).

This entity which is celebrating 20 years of existence under the claims “Nobody is alone” and “Taking care of the future”, hosted its 5th congress in Lisbon, Portugal.
In this edition of the congress, Body Interact was featured at the Innovation Office – a simulation zone where attendees could play with Body Interact educational scenarios, and participate in the clinical sessions lectured by Professor Miguel Padilha, teacher at the Nursing School of Porto (ESEP) and investigator at CINTESIS.

It was a nice occasion to be with the Portuguese community of nurses and to promote networking, discussion and experiential opportunities around Body Interact nursing scenarios.
Our acknowledgment to the team and staff of the Portuguese Order of Nurses, and to all who participated in this great meeting!

Virtual patients in Nursing education, a “game-changer”

The countdown has started, the International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation & Learning (INACSL) 2018’s event is about to start in the beautiful city of Toronto, Canada.

The introduction of simulation has produced significant improvements in nursing education, and its digital side has become a “game-changer”, empowering clinical education in a great manner.
Body Interact will take part on the pre-conference tour – Virtual and Augmented Realities: An Exploration in Simulation Based Learning – and will be presented to detail its capabilities and its current responsibility in Nursing clinical education.

The future of safe, quality health care delivery and nursing education is dependent on the integration of technology, and Body Interact as a virtual patient software, alongside its strong algorithm was recently recognized on a nursing research study with remarkable results, where the “students revealed perceived ease, usefulness, and intention to use CVS as an important complementary strategy for their nursing education programs.” An emerging paradigm shift in the perceptions of students and teachers.

We invite you to attend the INACSL pre-conference and conference from June 13th to 16th, and get to know more about Body Interact at the NASCO Simulaids’ booth #201.

Body Interact has now multiple clinical scenarios for nursing

Gone are the days when nursing students had very few simulation learning resources.
Collecting blood samples from a colleague or using a pillow to inject a syringe, are outdated procedures.

We wonder what Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing, would say about Body Interact. Did you know we have several scenarios built specifically for nursing education?

The future of safe, quality health care delivery and nursing education is dependent on the integration of technology, and Body Interact is working to deliver you that same safe future.

Feel free to reach us if you would like to discover more.

Innovation on Nursing Education

Porto Nursing School students are the first ones in Portugal to train their skills with our smart virtual patients

Body Interact and the students and staff of the Nursing School of Porto (ESEP), in Portugal, were featured at SIC Notícias (Portuguese TV channel).

ESEP’s students were the first Portuguese Nursing students having access to Body Interact as a learning accelerator tool to complement their clinical education. Gone are the days where clinical reasoning decisions were very hard to train!

Nowadays, using their Body Interact touch table at school, or their Body Interact web accounts which are available anywhere and anytime, these students can do a more complete training using our fascinating world of smart virtual patients with real-world validity, from different specialties, on a realistic environment, and without harming anyone.

UTRGV going further: commitment to excellent academic education and affordable, meaningful learning opportunities for students

On April 2015, the UTRGV School of Medicine was the only US institution owning Body Interact touchscreen tabletops. Since then, Body Interact is continuously being used by local schools and organizations as a clinical education teaching tool, and to teach and train university students in a variety of healthcare disciplines.
“Usually, when we put people to working on the tables, they don’t want to leave and we have to pry them out of the room.” – Dr. Kristina Stillsmoking, PhD, Director of the Simulation Hospital and director of Clinical Simulation at UTRGV.

Named as one of the best colleges in Texas on 2017 by BestColleges.com, UTRGV is a leading provider of higher education information and resources.

Body Interact team feels very honored to be part of this educational project.
Congratulations UTRGV for taking clinical education further! May we continue to share the commitment for excellence on the road to smart medicine and to celebrate many more success stories.
