SimulationOnline™

Data driven online medical education


Our expertise

VirtaMed's award-winning SimulationOnline™ platform was created during the pandemic: a screen-based simulation solution to scale training anywhere, anytime. Adaptive learning pathways meet learners at their level, providing expert clinical advice along the way.

Your existing training materials and/or Instructions For Use form the basis for SimulationOnline™, using clinical decision making and active learning principles to maximize knowledge transfer.


Solutions

Female health - Making a difference

IUS and IUD placement, step-by-step procedure flows, instructions, tips and tricks, best practices and minimally invasive robotic system setup training for hysterectomy.

“These are just things you're expected to go through as women.” - If you visit a reddit page or online forum discussing gynecological procedures  - Pap tests, IUD placement, biopsies, hysterectomy etc.  - you'll find that the stories vary vastly on the degree of discomfort women experience during and after these treatments. Women’s pain is often dismissed or undertreated. It doesn't need to be. We believe that training plays a crucial part in improving procedures.

Arthroscopy - Diagnose, treat and repair

Learn the basics of knee arthroscopy, improve and standardize surgical education curriculum, perform complete diagnostic arthroscopies, carry out smaller surgical interventions or practice an anatomical ACL reconstruction.

All of our cases, procedure steps and metrics have been defined and developed in close collaboration with the Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA) in the Copernicus Initiative. The addition of online training options is one of the most recent in a series of updates stemming from a collaborative agreement to advance and improve arthroscopy surgery skill training and develop standards for proficiency-based training curricula.

Robotics - Memorize, set-up, delegate

Robotic surgical training curriculum to equip surgeons with theoretical knowledge and practical understanding of how-to setup a robot and console, the fundamentals of operating the robot and achieving competence to perform operations safely. 

The number of procedures performed using robots in the past decade has been growing exponentially. The introduction of newer and newer robotic systems led to new challenges in training needs. The learning curve for robotic surgery is shorter - than e.g., for laparoscopic surgery - and has also been shown to be less mentally stressful. However, familiarity of the surgical system can further reduce the cognitive load and stress on the individual surgeon.


Partnership

I firmly believe that simulation training should be considered an essential component, rather than a mere option, in surgical education and robotic surgery training. VirtaMed's Dexter simulator is remarkably close to the actual Dexter robot, making it an invaluable tool for honing the skills necessary to operate the robot proficiently before entering the operating room.

We are pleased to partner with VirtaMed, whose 15 years of experience in providing training solutions for minimally invasive transvaginal surgeries will be invaluable as we work to integrate proficiency-based simulation across the skills development pathway for surgeons using our Hominis System.

VirtaMed has shown us that they are not just our vendor, but a strategic partner in a vision to improve patient outcomes together with us. Our experience with VirtaMed has far exceeded expectations, and we strongly recommend them for any new  company moving into medical simulation or taking their simulation to the next level.

We were looking for a portable solution that demonstrates the experience and advantages of Symani while providing a realistic microsurgery training environment. In VirtaMed, we’ve found a partner who shares our mission to improve patient outcomes and the quality of care through comprehensive training methods, allowing us to enrich the training experiences of our surgeons and drive adoption of robotic microsurgery.

Mark Toland

CEO of MMI

The aim of simulation is to standardize best practices to ultimately improve clinical outcomes using skill and procedural-based metrics while reducing the learning curve to becoming proficient with the system. Virtual reality-based simulation offers physicians the opportunity to acquire the necessary skills to become technically competent prior to use in a real-world clinical setting.

With Virtamed’s unique expertise in simulation training solutions and Aspivix’ s commitment to advancing women’s healthcare through innovation designed for clinicians with women’s experience in mind, we focused on supporting healthcare professionals with new medical education to improve IUDs placement with our Carevix. Our early adopters have been impressed by the quality, ease-of-use, and innovation of the 3D online simulator on IUD.

Together with our shared goal to improve patient care, our collaboration with VirtaMed represents an incredible opportunity to advance innovation in FemTech and revolutionize the medical education for current and future healthcare professionals in gynecology.

Mathieu Horras

CEO and co-founder of ASPIVIX

Improving patient care is at the core of what we do; education and proper training on Paragard® plays a crucial role. The agility and flexibility of the VirtaMed developer team is outstanding!  We couldn’t be happier with the quality of the simulator training program and the tools they created for us. Our simulators are a customized interactive solution that delivers a user-friendly, compliant experience for healthcare professionals.
