Currently, medical professionals use simulation training, including mannequins or actors.  These systems are good for teaching procedures and analyzing how a team works together.  However, these systems are expensive and labor intensive, and require significant space and support staff.   They are neither agile nor scalable..

AkēLex has developed a sophisticated simulation system that can create virtual patients with realistic, complex medical scenarios.  These scenarios can test the skills of multiple levels of providers in multiple settings – clinic, office, urgent care, and hospital.  We can simulate a single patient or scenario, or simultaneous patients, each with one or many concurrent active problems.  Past medical history, social history, and family history are accounted for, and patient outcomes are adapted in real time to user input. Moreover, we can vary the time course of the simulation to test patient management in a single encounter or chronic disease management over years.
