CAE Healthcare LearningSpace integrates with MedAffinity Electronic Health Records (EHR) system for medical simulation education


Las Vegas, USA, September 29, 2015 - On the eve of the National League for Nursing (NLN) Education Summit in Las Vegas, CAE Healthcare and MedAffinity announced that they have partnered to integrate a MedAffinity Electronic Health Records (EHR) system into LearningSpace to provide more realism in healthcare simulations. LearningSpace is CAE Healthcare's comprehensive center management system that delivers audiovisual recording of simulations for debrief as well as learner performance assessment, scheduling, reporting and asset management for Standardized Patient and healthcare simulation programs.

"We are excited to partner with MedAffinity to achieve this milestone in healthcare simulation. For the first time, our educators can offer learners realistic and measurable practice with a comprehensive EHR system," said Dr. Robert Amyot, President of CAE Healthcare. "It allows educators to evaluate how well learners record a patient exam as well as their clinical reasoning leading to diagnosis and treatment. MedAffinity's dual experience in both clinical and educational environments is invaluable as it delivers exactly what both educators and learners need quickly, seamlessly and without nonessential steps."

MedAffinity designs EHR systems for both clinical environments and educational settings, and the interface for learners has eliminated a number of barriers that have kept simulation programs from successfully incorporating EHR. The learner's screen is less complex than a clinical EHR program, and all the pertinent patient information is captured on one screen. While most EHR programs record patient information in real-time, the MedAffinity solution adapts to simulation scenarios that occur over simulated time spans. With the LearningSpace integration, all of the Simulated Clinical Experience (SCE) content will be added into the EHR system. LearningSpace administrators will be able to evaluate and score what the learner has entered into the MedAffinity EHR during the simulation.

"We are proud to provide the exclusive EHR integrated into CAE LearningSpace," said MedAffinity founder and CEO Dustin Holt. "MedAffinity's innovative design and functionality turn static simulation scenarios into a true interactive EHR environment. Faculty and simulation staff now can assess students' charting along with the rest of the simulation experience on the industry-leading LearningSpace platform."

What the Industry is saying about MedAffinity EHR...

     "I had spent over two years reviewing EHR systems that were available for education and specifically for simulation… In July, 2014, MedAffinity installed its electronic health records software, MedAffinity EHR. The response we received from faculty and staff was overwhelmingly positive. It took 15 minutes to train them on the basic navigation of the system. It gave us so much flexibility to be able to make changes “on the fly” as happens in the hospital setting. Students liked how user friendly the software is."
