Virtual Patient Simulation for Medical Education

Body Interact provides a safe, immersive and realistic training environment for medical students and professionals, through life-like virtual patient encounters.

  • Foster critical thinking and clinical reasoning skills
  • Promote patient safety and high-quality care
  • Improve knowledge retention and teamwork

The benefits of simulated-based learning

Foster medical students competencies

Narrow the theory-practice gap

Provide standardized clinical encounters through immersive learning experiences. Facilitate clinical skills development and knowledge acquisition to prepare students' transition from the classroom to the clinical healthcare setting.

Motivation and satisfaction

Build medical students knowledge, clinical skills, and confidence. Enable practice a user-friendly and intuitive educational software available for multitouch screens, desktops, and mobile devices.

Decision-making abilities

Reinforce students' confidence by providing them with a risk-free training environment. Expose them to a wide range of clinical scenarios with different levels of complexity and clinical conditions.

Development of non-technical skills

Facilitate collaborative learning and interdisciplinary collaboration to deliver a comprehensive practice. Foster teamwork, communication, and a holistic approach to patients.

Real-time feedback

Infinitely repeatable simulations enable deliberate and reflective practice. Patients immediately react to users' actions, enabling students to learn from their own actions and mistakes.

Effective practice and assessment

Virtual patient scenarios allow medical students to actively participate in patient management, medication administration, communication with patients, prioritization of tasks, and critical care interventions for patients.

Promote medical schools and medical educators success

Curriculum integration

Body Interact is a time-saving and cost-effective solution for Medical Education. Its extensive library of ready-made clinical scenarios conducts comprehensive and cohesive learning experiences that bridges theoretical knowledge and practical application.

Customized scenarios

Customize clinical scenarios tailoring them according to the institution’s curriculum and learning objectives. Ensure content relevance and accuracy to suit national and local protocols and guidelines.

Active learning

Deliver dynamic virtual simulation-based learning experiences. Modernize traditional Medical Education through evidence-based simulation in your classroom, simulation center, and at home.

Data-driven debriefing

Support learner’s progress by tracking their performance and assess their proficiency at the end of each scenario. Provide constructive feedback and help them consolidate knowledge and validate acquired clinical competencies.

Competency-based assessment

Performance tracking and analytic tools for medical education programs with Body Interact – Learning Management System

Body Interact Studio

BI Studio

Performance assessment

After every virtual clinical case Body Interact provides users with a time report that lists, for each moment, all the users’ actions during the simulation, the health conditions untreated and the patient’s vital signs, at that moment.

Explore the instructor guides, debriefing tools, and performance analytics that support you in enhancing training effectiveness and fostering critical thinking in patient care.

Objective Structured Clinical Examination OSCE

Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE)

Ensure standardized assessment of a broad range of clinical skills, with one or multiple virtual patient scenarios.

Users will be required to demonstrate skills such as completing a physical examination, obtaining a proper clinical history of the patient, selecting and interpreting correct data to assess (vital signs and medical tests), implementing a treatment protocol and/or managing an emergent medical issue.
