B-Line Medical Announces the Release of SimCube™ an Affordable and Comprehensive Solution for Capturing and Evaluating Simulation Encounters


New Product Line Provides Powerful, Targeted Tools for Medical Simulation and Affordable, Digital Solutions for Smaller-Scale Institutions

SILVER SPRING, MD, March 22nd, 2007 – B-Line Medical, LLC today announced the release of an exciting new product targeted towards the medical simulation space. Continuing to build on their expertise in the clinical assessment domain, and drawing upon extensive feedback from their user base of top-ranked medical schools, hospitals and nursing programs, B-Line Medical has developed SimCube ™, a portable, low cost complement to the already successful center-wide SimCenter™ solution.

SimCube™ delivers what the simulation community has been waiting for; an affordable, portable, and easy to use solution for capturing simulation encounters. B-Line Medical’s SimCube™ records multiple video feeds digitally, handles annotation and debriefing, integrates seamlessly with numerous simulator manufacturers including METI®, Laerdal®, and Immersion Medical™ and automatically builds participant portfolios. SimCube™ also manages users, provides tools for scenario and checklist creation, generates multiple types of reports, and is 100% web-based. Ultimately, SimCube™ delivers what medical educators need most - more effective use of limited resources, improved efficiency in assessing students, and elimination of paper evaluations and VHS tapes / DVDs.

“Our clients and partners have played a vital role in the evolution of the SimCube™ product. As a company, we have always put our users first and are committed to innovating to improve their experience- this is a case where we were able to have some really dynamic conversations and build that experience from the ground up,” said Chafic Kazoun, President and CTO of B-Line Medical. “I’m confident that this process has resulted in a powerful tool that will have immediate impact on how people educate using simulation.”

SimCube™ was built with flexibility in mind. It can be connected to multiple types of simulators or to other SimCubes to function in a larger setting. The SimCube™ can even be plugged into B-Line Medical’s center-wide SimCenter™ solution to work hand in hand within a diverse simulation environment that includes both simulators and standardized patients. This flexibility allows users to start small and expand with ease when they secure additional simulators or move into a larger space.

SimCube’s software and hardware package is comprehensive. Upon system setup, users will be able to record, page, annotate, and debrief sessions digitally. Sessions are also archived and associated with individual participants for effortless portfolio assembly. SimCube’s debriefing software automatically generates trend lines for physiological data and captures log files for events and drug interactions. Both are dynamic and “clickable” allowing users to quickly jump to relevant sections in the digital video.

SimCube™ Feature Highlights:
• Digitally records multiple feeds
• Synchronous playback
• Predefined text & free text annotation
• SimBridge™ simulator integration
• Participant portfolios
• Scenario & checklist creation
• Testing & assessment
• Portable & scalable
• 100% web-based
• Cross platform
