SimforHealth offers an immersive, interactive and collaborative approach to the training of health professionals, in line with the ethical concept “Never the first time with the patient“
Thanks to our medical, educational, and technological expertise, we have developed solutions which have already enabled the training of more than 40,000 health professionals across the world.
SimforHealth is recognized by BPI France as one of the 2,000 most innovative companies in France (BPI Excellence 2016), is ranked 256th in the 2014 European Deloitte In Extenso Technology Fast 500 (fastest-growing companies over the last 5 years), and raised 5 million euros in May 2016 to speed up its development.
Convinced that digital simulation can improve the care of patients, SimforHealth creates and markets customized solutions for digital simulation teaching, aimed at medical students and at health professionals in continuing education.
Our solutions help with patient management via virtual consultations, which rely on a range of methods and technologies including 3D real-time simulators, serious games, virtual reality, mixed or augmented reality. Working alongside health education establishments, our company is thus developing immersive, interactive and collaborative teaching tools.

The medical excellence to which our doctors aspire is not innate. It is only by being faced with a situation, at least virtually, that one can learn.
Being stimulated in one’s learning by a virtual patient and by questions, allows learning to be more active, more fun, and easier to memorize. Sharing facts and ideas advances everyone’s knowledge.
At the cross-roads of all these principles, digital simulation is, for SimforHealth, the missing link between theory and practice, and is a complementary learning method which should find its place in both initial and continuing training programs.
SimforHealth wishes therefore to be the partner of choice for healthcare stakeholders, to build with them the future of training via digital simulation.
Our philosophy and our values
“Never the first time with the patient”,
is the motto at the entrance to the Boston Center for Medical Simulation, on which SimforHealth bases its developmental philosophy, so that a patient can be cared for by health professionals who are perfectly trained.
Respect is also a value which drives our teams. Beyond an open and attentive attitude, respect of others is about keeping one’s commitments to them in the long-term, whether it is a member of staff, a partner or a client.
Just as we help students and health professionals, through our training solutions, to aspire to excellence in their profession, so with our staff, we encourage the desire to excel by giving them the means to develop their expertise to reach the medical, educational and technological standards which our sector demands.
Our company is composed of educational and medical experts to provide a better understanding of health training needs, as well as software engineers specialized in 3D to recreate realistic clinical practice conditions.
Sharing of knowledge
We think that all discoveries and new facts should be shared and offered to the community for critical comment and debate, in order to advance the body of knowledge. To that end, we design training solutions which aim to be collaborative so as to increase knowledge exchange on an international level and encourage the professional development of our doctors.
Our methods of in-house working are themselves collaborative and rely on the sharing of everyone’s knowledge and experience to arrive together at the best solutions.
Our Research and Development Department is constantly thinking about ways to use the new technologies to provide more immersive and realistic training in healthcare. In this way, SimforHealth is collaborating with CEA Tech to incorporate haptic technology into the virtual world, with the CNRS to develop artificial intelligence for virtual clinical cases, and with the LAMPA research laboratory, and its PhD student in digital simulation Anne-Sophie Milcent, to create expressive virtual agents (endowed with emotions) in order to stimulate or promote empathy in health professionals.
In-house, we make innovation a watch-word so that everyone is motivated by a desire to do better in their role.
