In mid-June 2019, CAE Healthcare announced a new agreement with UK-based software company, TWME8, to become the exclusive global distributor of the iRIS simulation authoring platform for healthcare.
“We are delighted to collaborate with TWME8 in setting the global standard for scenario authoring for healthcare simulation,” said Rekha Ranganathan, President of CAE Healthcare. “The iRIS platform helps clinical educators deliver learning that is aligned with best practices, and it can be integrated into a broad spectrum of simulation training scenarios, from manikins to Standardized Patients to virtual learning.”
iRIS: Leading the way in collaborative simulation scenario authoring
A rapidly growing number of clinical educators across the world use the iRIS software platform to create learning content that aligns with society standards and regional healthcare practices. The software allows group collaboration and sharing, and it can also support summative and formative assessments across campuses.
With iRIS (a web-based simulation authoring platform that drives quality and consistency in healthcare training scenarios), there is no need to "reinvent the wheel." The platform provides a centralized repository for content development and team collaboration, regardless of physical location. This enables support for all scenario authoring and ensures different teams are effectively using the same scenario -- even if they are utilizing different simulators.
In January 2019, CAE Healthcare announced the integration of iRIS and its Maestro operating software, which allowed users to easily export clinical scenarios for CAE Healthcare patient simulators. The new agreement builds upon the strength of both companies as innovators in healthcare education for nursing and medical specialties.
“We are incredibly excited to team up with CAE to continue the industry’s determination to improve patient safety and drive standards. This relationship will enable the acceleration of this vision," said Phil Purver, CEO of TWME8.
Those attending the 2019 meeting of the Association for Simulated Practice in Healthcare (ASPiH UK 2019) in Belfast this November 4-6 will get to explore the iRIS platform within CAE Healthcare's booths and discover the possibilities of integrating iRIS into their own simuation training scenarios.
