Swedish simulation training software provider Mentice AB has introduced a new subscription service for its VIST endovascular platform in a bid to make it more accessible to hospitals and health systems.

Mentice said the new service offered a significant reduction in upfront costs for health care providers. It also included free software updates, complimentary trials of new procedures and the removal of hidden service fees.

"With global health systems and hospitals experiencing significant pressures to improve productivity, reduce costs, and improve patient outcomes, we remain laser-focused on our quest to help improve endovascular procedure performance and patient outcomes through simulation," said Göran Malmberg, CEO at Mentice.

"While our VIST platform helps our clients improve their clinical performance, the introduction of software subscription on our training modules aligns Mentice to the financial realities of a clinical practice."
