We Help Students and Clinicians Learn
Simulated “real world” experience
i-Human Patients provides a complete, active learning experience that results in more effective competency development and knowledge retention. Students and clinicians take a patient history, perform physical exams, select and prioritize differentials, order and interpret tests, develop a treatment plan, and document the encounter in the built-in EMR. Our fully interactive, immersive multimedia user experience simulates the real world. Follow patients over time as their symptoms and diagnoses increase in complexity.
Self-directed and team-based learning
i-Human Patients provides individualized feedback and coaching at every step of the way, showing students and clinicians how their questions, interpretations and decisions compare to those of an expert. In team-based i-Human Patients settings, players consult with and learn from each other as they work through cases together. Embedded learning exercises, basic science tutorials and optional reference links provide a full, integrated learning experience.
We Help Medical Educators Educate.
Accelerate clinical competency development with increasingly complex diagnostic reasoning challenges
i-Human Patients provides progressive clinical competency development from undergraduate to graduate medical education and beyond. Use it to provide early simulated patient encounters and a clinical context for learning basic sciences. Expose students and clinicians to a full range of presenting patients, reinforcing a symptoms-based diagnosis approach. Help users revisit basic science concepts in their clinical years.
Objectively evaluate individual and group performance
i-Human Patients data analytics provides a wealth of information on both individual and group performance. What can be concluded about their patient assessment and diagnostic reasoning development based on their history taking, physical exams, differentials, test interpretations and diagnoses? What areas can be identified for improvement?
Select from existing cases or easily create, customize and share your own
i-Human Patients is offered with two types of simulated patient cases: those created by subscriber institutions and freely shared under a Creative Commons licensing model; and those authored and peer-reviewed by faculty from leading medical schools across the country and funded by the American Medical Association. In addition, our free point-and-click authoring system and rich medical multimedia repository of tutorials, learning exercises, ECGs, CTs, radiographs, echocardiograms, colonoscopy and endoscopy videos, pathology slides, etc. make it easy to create your own cases or create derivative works. Share these with others using our cloud-based Creative Commons rights management and case distribution system.
