MADISON, Wis. (PRWEB) January 16, 2018
Award-winning learning game developer Filament Games and industry newcomer AppClinic are pleased to announce the launch of the AppClinic series, a collection of cutting-edge digital applications and games that enable students and professionals in the healthcare and veterinary industries to study, develop, and practice their skills. This affordable, award-winning collection of apps was designed and developed by academics, and is already being used by hundreds of students worldwide. Each app is targeted towards a specific learning outcome, and provides turnkey study and practice content for students looking to reinforce their knowledge and understanding of key concepts in the healthcare and veterinary fields.
“We’re tremendously excited to partner with AppClinic to develop and distribute these games and apps,” said Filament Games CEO Dan White. “Simulations like those included in the AppClinic collection are a practical way to encourage deeper learning and longer retention, which are critical for students looking to excel in healthcare and veterinary programs.”
For veterinary students and professionals, AppClinic offers the VetClinic Bone Viewer app collection, allowing users to explore and study the skeletal anatomy of cats, dogs, horses, and oxen. For healthcare students and professionals, AppClinic offers games and apps that focus on neuroscience concepts, clinical case handling, hand washing hygiene techniques, and CPR/AED procedure.
Dr. Eric B. Baumann, a professional EMT and RN who also serves as the lead of AppClinic, said “Games like those in the AppClinic collection work extremely well for healthcare and veterinary education, because these domains are by their very nature practice-based. Whether they are nurses, physicians, or veterinarians, clinicians are constantly being evaluated through performance. This is consistent with the very nature of game mechanics and how games engage players and facilitate learning.”
Available now through the iOS storefront for both students and professionals, AppClinic also offers institutions 50% off high volume purchasing for all apps through the iOS App Store Volume Purchasing Program. For this inaugural release, AppClinic and Filament Games will be demoing the AppClinic collection in Booth 122 at the International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH), taking place in Los Angeles, CA from January 13-17, 2018.
