VR Patient Communication Simulator – PCS Spark
Patient Communication Simulator (PCS) Spark is a collection of virtual reality (VR) standardised patients that you can talk to using conversational artificial intelligence (AI), now in a British accent.
PCS Spark enables you to:
- Develop patient communication skills and empathy
- Have truly diverse standardised patients
- Teach remotely with no faculty or VR headset required
- Treat patients in a variety of virtual environments, e.g. home, ward and ambulance
- Easily create your own scenarios
- Empower students to learn collaboratively
For a limited time, Simulaids is offering instant FREE access to 3 trial scenarios; a COVID-19 screening case, a headache case and a chest pain case.
There is no commitment and no obligation to purchase, but there is a limited number of free licences we can give away.
The PCS Engine
Built on the latest machine learning technologies, the PCS Engine delivers conversational AI for patient-provider interview training.
Begin your appointment as you would with any patient visit. First by reviewing the electronic patient care record and then, speaking with your patient, use natural and everyday language to find out what symptoms they’ve been experiencing.
Your virtual patient has told you why they’re here, but now it’s time to check their vitals. Let them know when you’re ready to listen to their heart, check their blood pressure and much more. All of which are all based on the specific case.
Once the scenario is over, most learners will want to know how they performed. PCS Spark provides instant and automated assessment at the end of each scenario letting students know which areas they did well in and which need further work.
VR & Browser
PCS Spark is designed to run anytime, anywhere. Want the most engaging and immersive experience? Choose VR.
Need the flexibility for students to use outside of class? Or looking to practice a Telemedicine experience? The browser-based version of PCS Spark is set up just for that.
Concerned about fitting PCS Spark into your established curriculum? Don’t be, you can easily import already developed scenarios using our intuitive patient case authoring tool.
Learners can practice simulation scenarios the night before at home using their computer or tablet. Then experience the same scenario on any PCS enabled patient simulator such as ALEX and PCS Plus – the wearable simulator.
The VR headsets and accessories are sold separately.
