Digital simulation in healthcare refers to the use of digital technologies to reproduce clinical situations or environments, to teach diagnostic and therapeutic procedures and to allow a healthcare professional to practice procedures, clinical situations or decision making

Learning by digital simulation

Digital simulation allows students to acquire their first skills and health professionals to keep their knowledge fresh by practicing virtually, so as to be optimally prepared to manage a patient. It is by being faced with a situation that one really learns how to deal with it. 

Digital simulation also enables the presentation of rare pathologies which a health professional may only see once in his or her career. The sharing of knowledge between peers through digital simulation techniques helps train everyone, hence avoiding the need to practice the first time with the patient.

Digital simulation allows learning by trial and error without any consequences for the health of a real patient, and provides an immersive learning experience in which stimulation by a virtual patient and by questions helps memorization.

Practicing procedures, discussing therapeutic decision making, training virtually for complex situations – all are educational objectives to which digital simulation brings an innovative and relevant contribution, with the advantage of being adaptable to new forms of training:  at a distance, alone, in a group etc.

SimforHealth travaille

So for SimforHealth, digital simulation is the missing link between theory and practice and a complementary learning method which should find its place in both initial and continuing training programs

Our expertise

Our solutions help patient management via virtual consultations relying on different methods and technologies including 3D real-time simulators, serious games, virtual reality, mixed or augmented reality.

The SimforHealth teams provide a totally customized development of your clinical cases, including, on request, specific technologies and methods such as medical imaging, videos, and 3D modeling.

With the help of health professionals, we take care of all the developmental parameters of the clinical cases, including patient profile, in-depth clinical investigations, viewing of test results, varied environments, medical records, realistic dialogues etc., resulting in a high quality immersive and interactive solution.

  • Universities, university hospitals, simulation centers

    When working with you, we determine the optimal simulation solution to give your learners the best chance of being well prepared to take on the care of a patient.
  • Training

    Thanks to digital simulation, we can help your courses stand out by making them fun, collaborative and more amenable to learning.
  • Learned

    Digital simulation is a knowledge dissemination and skill improvement method so that every doctor can perfect their expertise in their field. We have worked with you to develop a series of good practices.

The MedicActiv offer


SimforHealth has developed
MedicActiV, a proposal for the creation and sharing of virtual clinical
for all healthcare professionals.

The MedicActiV platform

The MedicActiV platform aims to distribute medical knowledge to the largest number of people by encouraging a collaborative approach.
Universities, university hospitals, simulation centers, academic societies, teaching organizations, can all create their clinical cases and distribute them to their learners or to their peers for teaching purposes.

Whether in initial or continuing education, health professionals can in this way consult clinical cases on our platform and develop their knowledge and skills, thanks to learning by digital simulation.

The authoring tool, MedicActiV

We invite you to create your own clinical cases with the help of an editor.
With MedicActiV, any health professional, without any special I.T. knowledge, can create a clinical case in its entirety by entering the virtual patient’s medical record, the doctor/patient conversations and the different diagnostic and therapeutic decision options, as well as, at the end of the simulation, an assessment of the decisions taken. The resulting virtual clinical cases work thanks to an interaction between a “real” doctor and a “virtual” patient through a “chatterbot”.
