Philips Healthcare Virtual Medical Simulation
Philips Healthcare needed an effective and innovative way to train physicians on their complete XperCT and XperGuide procedures. Their standard classroom/PowerPoint education wasn’t cutting it, so they turned to DDA Medical and our advanced state-of-the-art virtual medical simulations. Once they saw a demo of our work, Philips knew instantly that was the solution for which they’d been searching.
No other company they’d seen had created anything near the level of interactivity and innovation that DDA Medical had. Through a combination of video, animation, audio narration, still photography, and 3D models, DDA Medical created Philip’s futuristic virtual lab environment. In this lab, physicians are able to virtually perform the procedure through an active simulation.
A video introduction and passive simulation prepares users by walking them through the procedure step-by-step, before giving them the tools to do it on their own. One of Philips’ biggest hurdles is in getting physicians to show interest in and train quickly and effectively on the equipment associated with the procedure.
This simulation provides physicians with a hands-on introduction to all medical equipment involved in a Philips interventional suite and allows them to learn and train in a life-like environment in the comfort of their office or home.
By giving physicians control over the learning experience in a much-more visually interesting and engaging way, Philips has the ability to increase the rate of retention, interest, and effectiveness. The potential this tool has in training, not only physicians, but sales representatives, nurses, technicians, and other healthcare professionals, cannot be overstated.
It’s revolutionizing Philips’ training methods, reducing training costs, and providing a higher level of preparedness and understanding that will benefit the patients, clinicians, and Philips.
