Reduce clinical errors

As a virtual patient simulator for Clinical Education, Body Interact accelerates critical thinking and develops decision-making skills while focusing on patient safety

BI Medical Education

Real time feedback

With an advanced physiological algorithm, each virtual patient reacts immediately to the users’ actions. Students see clearly how their actions impact the patient in real time

BI Medical Education

Standardized clinical encounters

An extensive library of virtual patients with relevant and diverse clinical situations, provides educators a tool to utilise advanced teaching and assessment methodologies

Create your own scenario

Adapt existing scenarios or create your ones from scratch to match your curricular needs and learning objectives

BI Studio

Learning Management System

As an educator, you can track your learners’ performance by having real-time detailed dashboards and the ability to set up and run OSCEs easily

  • Deliver clinical scenarios to your students. Create either training or evaluation sessions which they’ll access through their own device

  • See the learning objectives of each scenario and check its Quick Solution Guide

  • Add web-based resources that will be available at the end of each clinical scenario as an additional resource

Why Educators love Body Interact

I find Body Interact to be an excellent tool to improve critical thinking and decision-making skills.
Hearing the monitors and the sound of respiratory difficulty makes us feel the real pressure.

Maria Ferreira5th-year Medical Student from Faculty of Medicine of University of Porto

Our students love Body Interact.
When they see what they can do and realize they are actually learning, they get very curious.

Dr Edgar Herrera, MDPresident of the Mexican Society of Simulation and Professor at Anahuac University

It's exciting to watch students learn and become emotionally attached to the clinical cases. It provides practical knowledge to the learner rather than having the educator dictate the outcome.

Matthew W. Martinez, MD, FACCAssociate Chef, Education, Division of Cardiolofy at Lehigh Valley Health Network
