Our Mission & Vision
To create innovative products that enhance the quality and effectiveness of educational processes in an ever-changing healthcare environment.
To provide the tools to systematically and inexpensively teach and assess clinical skills to improve health and wellness worldwide, during our lifetime and for future generations.
To ensure the human aspect of healthcare delivery endures in an increasingly virtual world by including human factor realism to promote clear communication, competency, and compassion.
Our commitment to high quality simulation education
BGEI is a leader in the movement to change industry thinking about how simulation needs to work, shifting the focus to realism. Recent accolades include recognition as one of the top twelve “Patient Safety Advocates” from Medical Training Magazine (Jan 2019). The magazine made their selection from solicited subscriber nominations worldwide. BGEI also earned recognition as a “Top 10 Healthcare Simulation Solution Provider” by Healthcare Tech Outlook (Nov, 2018).
BGEI recognizes and believes enhancing the realism of standardized patients with our cost effective wearable clinical simulation devices, healthcare students and clinicians can be provided the opportunity to interact with a human in the most realistic clinical simulation possible. We designed these products because we saw the need for them in our own education environments.
Doctors, nurses, paramedics, corpsmen – we are all ordinary people - called to do extraordinary things on a regular basis. We provide care for real people in vulnerable, potentially dangerous conditions. In addition to skills competence, we need to integrate communication skills and situational awareness, including the influence of human factors, as they play a major role in patient and provider safety.
ReaLifeSim products, created by clinical educators, are designed to help students develop competency in all these areas. The end goals - clinician competence & confidence and improved patient care, safety, and satisfaction.
ReaLifeSim & VetReaLifeSim products can also be used to merge the practice and assessment of skills in an authentic setting with a virtual simulation environment to create a dynamic mixed-reality learning environment.
And, because we at BGEI recognize the expense to purchase and maintain high fidelity manikin simulation has and will continue to play an important role in simulation, our products can be "worn" by high and low fidelity manikins and simulators to further enhance their realism and sustainability.
Integrating Interpersonal Communication
into High-Tech Education Environments
In response to the shift in teaching and evaluating clinical competencies in both students and professionals, BGEI designed the product line ReaLifeSim: several integrated and interactive clinical simulation training products that enhance the clinical realism of standardized participants. These products were successfully lab and field tested with distribution for sales beginning Spring 2017. Our Trademarks ReaLifeSim, VetReaLifeSim, and RLSimApp are registered and product design patents are filed domestically/internationally with the United States Patent & Trademark Office.
B & G Educational Innovation (BGEI), founded and operated by healthcare educators, is leading the way to improve patient safety with wearable clinical simulation products that improve both hands-on and communication skills.
