"...there is little opportunity for learners to continue to practice using a large volume of distinct cases that deliberately guide them toward mastery,” said Hamilton. “CaseMaster addresses that need.”

In partnership with Drexel University College of Medicine, Education Management Solutions (EMS), the leader in clinical simulation management solutions, today launched SIMULATIONiQ™ CaseMaster™, a cloud-based subscription system that enables learners to practice on virtual patients from anywhere, at any time, and on any device to master clinical skills.
SIMULATIONiQ CaseMaster is a unique, interactive clinical case authoring and training platform that empowers healthcare professionals to create numerous clinical cases for learners to practice on in order to improve their cognitive skills. SIMULATIONiQ CaseMaster was co-developed with Richard Hamilton, MD, Professor and Chair of the Department of Emergency Medicine at Drexel University College of Medicine.
"We're very excited to partner with Dr. Hamilton and Drexel on SIMULATIONiQ CaseMaster," says Anurag Singh, EMS President and CEO. "It provides clinical case authors and instructors the opportunity to collaborate and create a large number of simulation cases in a variety of disciplines, such as emergency medicine, surgery, ob/gyn, and so on, quickly with more than 15,000 real clinical orders at their fingertips.”
SIMULATIONiQ CaseMaster’s unique features:
- Provides spontaneous reactions (changes vital signs, physicals, etc.) to orders placed by the learner
- Delivers real time coaching (clues or prompts) to learners as they run a case
- Mirrors time constraints through a clock that counts down when the learner runs a case
- Instant debrief on case completion
- Allows learners to rerun cases multiple times, which helps them achieve skill mastery through deliberate practice
Deliberate practice is a form of training that uses repetitive practice with continuous feedback and monitoring to achieve consistent improvement in skills with the goal of achieving mastery. It is generally accepted that deliberate practice requires many hours of training: 10,000 hours is a typical goal for mastery.
“In the current model of simulation based education, learners are exposed to highly developed simulation cases that have been identified as excellent teaching cases. However, there is little opportunity for learners to continue to practice using a large volume of distinct cases that deliberately guide them toward mastery,” said Hamilton. “CaseMaster addresses that need.” By partnering with Drexel, EMS has been able to develop SIMULATIONiQ CaseMaster into a completely interactive and user-friendly learning tool unlike any other available on the market today.
