Standardize and automate your clinical exams​

Stay in control as you prepare and manage Objective Structured Clinical Exams (OSCE) and high-stakes exams.​

SimCapture flexibly automates and digitalizes your clinical exam flow and evaluations in a customized way, while providing central management of multiple bays, rooms, and floors in a single control interface. It also enables team training and student-driven encounters (ideal for low-stakes OSCE, formative assessment, or training).

Key features include:

 

Optimal scheduling & configuration of simulation encounters and exams​

  • Choose the convenience of a digital interface over the tedious process of manually preparing, transcribing, and loading your cases.
  • Peace of mind: get everything ready in advance.
  • Manage multiple bays, rooms, and floors from a single interface – see all rooms and control them at once.
  • Running a couple of minutes late or last-minute changes to student/SP are easy to navigate.

Automation of clinical exam flows​

  • Students sign into activities independently once they have been enrolled in the course. 
  • Computerized forms and checklist auto-load for the required activity.​
  • Announcements are automatic within the encounter. 

Customizable workflow​

  • The platform adapts to most OSCE exam flows across the globe – including regional/school specificities as well as supporting multiple exam flows. The software has been adapted based on feedback from partners running OSCEs in all parts of the world.

Critical data at your fingertips​

  • Immediate scoring against defined competency standards and metrics. Education becomes data-driven.​
  • Visualization from extrapolated data and point-biserial correlations enables faculty to identify poorly defined questions in the scenarios, refine them, and improve their patient cases.​
  • Video data and annotations support objectivity in evaluations.​
  • Data also contributes to ensuring inter-rater and intra-rater reliability, as well as faculty development.

Hosted in the cloud – enabling remote OSCE​

  • Scoring rubrics, student evaluations, and recordings are accessible anytime, anywhere.
  • SP evaluations, learner patient notes, and simulated EMR (Electronic Medical Record) documentation are integrated directly into the OSCE workflow for seamless debrief and reporting.
  • You don’t have to be in your sim center to run your sim center – run your exams on-site or remotely via the integrated hybrid setup. All the process is within SimCapture including the video conferencing tool for the remote OSCE. Learners and SPs can interact without requiring a 3rd party software or subscriptions.
 

Deliver consistent, high-quality simulation training

Give your learners the training opportunities and high-quality feedback they need while bringing efficiency to managing, recording, debriefing, and assessing simulations:​

  • On-site​
  • On the move​
  • In situ

SimCapture enables you to run sessions with all types of simulation equipment, from task trainers to simulators, in real clinical environments - while providing you immediate insights on the team and individuals’ performance, respectively.

Key features include:

 

A uniform, repeatable structure for your scenarios to capture the data you need​

  • Assessments for formative and summative evaluations are standardized, enabling continuity in simulation program and experiences to be repeatable and equitable. ​
  • Assessment and evaluation metrics can be aligned with educational outcomes in the development of the scenario, which ultimately improves clinical competency.​
  • Annotations, evaluations, and self-reflections in easy-to-read dashboards help track and trend individual students as well as course outcomes.

Flexible recording options – without any compromise on quality​

  • Multiple camera angles and simulator data are captured and streamed from one or several simulation rooms at the same time.
  • In situ simulation sessions and transport cases can be captured with a mobile device for greater flexibility.
  • Debriefing is eased by video recording combined with an efficient system of predefined safety checklists and annotations. Customizations or additional checklists and annotations can be implemented at any time.​
  • Deletion options allow for hands- and worry-free video management.

Seamless integration features for a controlled environment​

  • SimCapture integrates with any simulator - and has a very advanced integration with LLEAP, making it easier to run sessions with your Laerdal simulators.
  • Sessions can be run in a real clinical environment / in real-life conditions, using simulated EMR (Electronic Medical Record) for documentation training purposes instead of real patient data – data can be edited and shared without risk of any confidentiality issues.​
  • Simulation is securely debriefed or streamed to any authenticated device during or afterward.

Versatile learning modalities​

  • Web-based platform accessible from anywhere so learners can watch scenarios as well as complete pre & post-evaluations.​
  • Peer-to-peer practice and self-recording assignments are supported by automated, timely, customizable feedback in support of best practice standards.​
  • In line with innovative teaching strategies, simulations can be done onsite, offsite, or in hybrid environment to expose learners to many diverse situations.
 

Record and debrief any simulation​

Debriefing is critical to simulation-based learning as it offers learners the opportunity to reflect on their performance and improve future training outcomes. With video-based feedback, they can think more clearly about what they did and why, absent the stress they may have experienced during the simulation itself.​

SimCapture is a digital solution that enables users to easily record and debrief any simulation – anywhere – providing the opportunity for enhanced feedback and training outcomes using video. ​

Key features include:

 

Advanced audio and video options​

  • Video capture includes device inputs such as simulators and real medical environment technologies for a realistic experience.​
  • Integrated cameras streamline simulation management.​
  • Automatic audio sync from multiple camera feeds for optimized playback during debrief.
  • Recording modalities are flexible and support any session in your sim lab, in situ / on the move, or remotely.

Efficient debriefing features​

  • Pre-defined and free-text, customizable annotations enable instructors to prepare and focus on critical aspects of the simulation and what they want to assess.​
  • Moments in the recordings can be marked and annotated for review.​
  • Fully customizable debrief view.

Intuitive to use – whether you’re a novice or simulation “pro”​

  • Simple and clear controls: easy to start, stop, and play recordings.​
  • Recordings are available for playback immediately.​
  • Annotations are clickable; users can easily scrub through a recording to focus on a specific point in time.​
  • Faculty can watch recordings from anywhere.​
  • Recordings are easily and securely shared with individual students on or off campus.
 

Get insights on learners’ performance​

Meaningful data has the power to transform learning outcomes. It provides valuable insights into the performance and progression of trainees over time and helps you identify those in need of remediation. This data plays a critical role in the successful implementation of competency-based education, focusing on mastering specific skills or knowledge areas at each trainee's own pace.

Discover how the data produced by SimCapture helps ensure trainees develop into proficient healthcare providers.
