  • Sim lab users are directed and tracked through SimCapture center sign-in functionality - keeps your administrative workload low.​
  • Instructors have access to a room overview.​
  • Administrators choose whether instructors can schedule their own sessions in the interface or mandate a request and approval process.​​​

Monitoring of all performance metrics of on-site and remote activities​

  • Instant access to users, standardized patients, simulators, rooms, clinical equipment, and center utilization tracking.​
  • Filter by organization, date range, room, location, simulator, and more to create hundreds of insightful reports for your learners, faculty, and dean.​
  • Hours in center, center resources, and simulator usage data help demonstrate utilization for budgeting and accreditation purposes (i.e. SSH accreditation).​
  • Easy-to-use navigation– all data available with only a few clicks of a mouse.​
  • All center usage data can be sorted, exported, and shared in various, digital formats.

Key features include:


Optimal scheduling & configuration of simulation encounters and exams​

  • Choose the convenience of a digital interface over the tedious process of manually preparing, transcribing, and loading your cases.
  • Peace of mind: get everything ready in advance.
  • Manage multiple bays, rooms, and floors from a single interface – see all rooms and control them at once.
  • Running a couple of minutes late or last-minute changes to student/SP are easy to navigate.

Automation of clinical exam flows​

  • Students sign into activities independently once they have been enrolled in the course. 
  • Computerized forms and checklist auto-load for the required activity.​
  • Announcements are automatic within the encounter. 

Customizable workflow​

  • The platform adapts to most OSCE exam flows across the globe – including regional/school specificities as well as supporting multiple exam flows. The software has been adapted based on feedback from partners running OSCEs in all parts of the world.

Critical data at your fingertips​

  • Immediate scoring against defined competency standards and metrics. Education becomes data-driven.​
  • Visualization from extrapolated data and point-biserial correlations enables faculty to identify poorly defined questions in the scenarios, refine them, and improve their patient cases.​
  • Video data and annotations support objectivity in evaluations.​
  • Data also contributes to ensuring inter-rater and intra-rater reliability, as well as faculty development.

Hosted in the cloud – enabling remote OSCE​

  • Scoring rubrics, student evaluations, and recordings are accessible anytime, anywhere.
  • SP evaluations, learner patient notes, and simulated EMR (Electronic Medical Record) documentation are integrated directly into the OSCE workflow for seamless debrief and reporting.
  • You don’t have to be in your sim center to run your sim center – run your exams on-site or remotely via the integrated hybrid setup. All the process is within SimCapture including the video conferencing tool for the remote OSCE. Learners and SPs can interact without requiring a 3rd party software or subscriptions.

Key features include:


A uniform, repeatable structure for your scenarios to capture the data you need​

  • Assessments for formative and summative evaluations are standardized, enabling continuity in simulation program and experiences to be repeatable and equitable. ​
  • Assessment and evaluation metrics can be aligned with educational outcomes in the development of the scenario, which ultimately improves clinical competency.​
  • Annotations, evaluations, and self-reflections in easy-to-read dashboards help track and trend individual students as well as course outcomes.

Flexible recording options – without any compromise on quality​

  • Multiple camera angles and simulator data are captured and streamed from one or several simulation rooms at the same time.
  • In situ simulation sessions and transport cases can be captured with a mobile device for greater flexibility.
  • Debriefing is eased by video recording combined with an efficient system of predefined safety checklists and annotations. Customizations or additional checklists and annotations can be implemented at any time.​
  • Deletion options allow for hands- and worry-free video management.

Seamless integration features for a controlled environment​

  • SimCapture integrates with any simulator - and has a very advanced integration with LLEAP, making it easier to run sessions with your Laerdal simulators.
  • Sessions can be run in a real clinical environment / in real-life conditions, using simulated EMR (Electronic Medical Record) for documentation training purposes instead of real patient data – data can be edited and shared without risk of any confidentiality issues.​
  • Simulation is securely debriefed or streamed to any authenticated device during or afterward.

Versatile learning modalities​

  • Web-based platform accessible from anywhere so learners can watch scenarios as well as complete pre & post-evaluations.​
  • Peer-to-peer practice and self-recording assignments are supported by automated, timely, customizable feedback in support of best practice standards.​
  • In line with innovative teaching strategies, simulations can be done onsite, offsite, or in hybrid environment to expose learners to many diverse situations.

Key features include:


Advanced audio and video options​

  • Video capture includes device inputs such as simulators and real medical environment technologies for a realistic experience.​
  • Integrated cameras streamline simulation management.​
  • Automatic audio sync from multiple camera feeds for optimized playback during debrief.
  • Recording modalities are flexible and support any session in your sim lab, in situ / on the move, or remotely.

Efficient debriefing features​

  • Pre-defined and free-text, customizable annotations enable instructors to prepare and focus on critical aspects of the simulation and what they want to assess.​
  • Moments in the recordings can be marked and annotated for review.​
  • Fully customizable debrief view.

Intuitive to use – whether you’re a novice or simulation “pro”​

  • Simple and clear controls: easy to start, stop, and play recordings.​
  • Recordings are available for playback immediately.​
  • Annotations are clickable; users can easily scrub through a recording to focus on a specific point in time.​
  • Faculty can watch recordings from anywhere.​
  • Recordings are easily and securely shared with individual students on or off campus.

Key features include:


Customizable assessments and evaluation metrics​

  • When developing the scenario, the instructor defines metrics in alignment with targeted educational outcomes and curriculum.​
  • Evaluated competences can weigh differently based on a coefficient system.​

Easy-to-read dashboards at individuals and cohort’s level​

  • Performance is instantly uploaded and evaluated against defined competency standards and metrics to objectively measure essential clinical competencies.​
  • All-in-one system collecting, organizing, and tracking data. ​
  • Instructors can easily identify how individuals and cohorts are performing, where the gaps are, and who needs remediation.​
  • Possibility to deep dive into a course and specific competencies while comparing results among the cohort.​
  • Statistics and trends on learner progress and program performance help you make data-driven decisions to improve program outcomes.  ​

Scores and feedback are available for students

  • Learners have their own SimCapture account to interact with content assigned or released to them, including:​
    • Past sessions
    • Calendar events and enrollment opportunities
    • Self or peer evaluations
    • Scores and performance reports
