The Patient Communication Simulator (PCS) is a patient simulator with advanced interpersonal communication training functionality. What does that mean? Well, it’s the first patient simulator that can see, listen, and talk.
Heightened reality heightens the impact of the training experience. Now healthcare professionals can practice and evaluate physiological assessment and improve upon patient interview skills in a natural, interactive fashion. Educators and facilitators can pre-define simulated behaviors and reactions to learners’ actions and questions and the simulator will respond.
But maybe the better question is not what is a PCS, but who.
Meet ALEX. Like a real patient, ALEX is more than just vital signs. ALEX fuses today’s most impactful emerging technologies into a truly remarkable new teaching tool, opening an exciting new chapter in patient simulation.
