October 2 2018 — GE Healthcare announced an equity investment in SonoSim, which specializes in ultrasound education and training. The expanded partnership will offer enhanced education services to new and existing ultrasound users around the world and across medical disciplines from women’s health and cardiology to point of care and primary care.
As ultrasound continues to grow in all medical fields, it is critical that clinicians are properly trained on the systems to effectively and efficiently tend to their patients– particularly in critical situations. Yet, access to proper training and educational resources remains a barrier for new – and even existing experienced – ultrasound users.
SonoSim provides scalable technology to train medical professionals and students in ultrasonography, using real patient cases spanning a broad spectrum of normal and pathologic conditions. The portable SonoSim Ultrasound Training Solution is a comprehensive laptop-based ultrasound training platform that offers a curriculum of 65-plus cloud-based courses, image acquisition and interpretation training using the SonoSimulator, and performance tracking.
GE Healthcare and SonoSim will showcase these offerings at the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) Conference, Oct. 1-4 in San Diego.
