How PCS Spark Works

The PCS Engine

Built on the latest machine learning technologies, the PCS Engine delivers conversational AI for patient-provider interview training.

Clinical Interview

Begin your appointment as you would with any patient visit by first reviewing the door notes and then speaking with your patient using natural and everyday language to find out what symptoms they’ve been experiencing.

Physical Exam

Your virtual patient has told you why she’s here, but now it's time to check their vitals. Let her know when you’re ready to take a listen to their heart, check their blood pressure and more all of which are all based on the specific case.


Once the scenario is over most learners want to know how they performed. PCS Spark provides instant and automated assessment at the end of each scenario letting students know which areas they did well in and which need work.
