GigXR, Inc., a global provider of extended reality (XR) solutions for healthcare training, and CAE Healthcare have partnered to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of clinical simulation. The collaboration between GigXR and CAE Healthcare streamlines the ability to implement and manage multimodal simulation for medical schools, nursing schools, hospital systems, first responders, and government – spanning analog, immersive and digital modalities that can be used to create full curricula.

"We see the future of simulation as multimodal, encompassing physical, digital, virtual and immersive products that leverage emerging technologies like Generative AI to provide comprehensive solutions for learning efficiency,” said Jeff Evans, President of CAE Healthcare. “As we work to implement this vision, we are balancing investments in CAE Healthcare products while also looking at best-of-breed players in the market that we should partner with to accelerate this transition. By partnering with GigXR, we are enabling a core part of this vision through ‘simulation everywhere’ to make training and education more accessible and efficient to ultimately improve learning and patient safety."

As healthcare staffing shortages surge, the entities believe combining GigXR’s growing catalog of immersive learning applications with CAE Healthcare’s extensive training infrastructure empowers healthcare institutions to drive learning efficacy and bring more capacity for improved care. The companies will integrate their combined product offerings such that activity across simulation modalities can enable holistic analysis and actionable insights – whether to help individual learners or to enable healthcare institutions to analyze full cohorts of learners consistently.

"GigXR’s immersive learning platform already unifies immersive and digital training applications into one system, allowing customers to manage a full curriculum’s worth of digital and immersive experiences from a single dashboard,” said Jared Mermey, CEO of GigXR. "Our platform is designed to be further interoperable with partners like CAE Healthcare, including both their digital and analog capabilities. The results will be a holistic approach to simulation that combines analog and digital – and the right simulation technique to be used at the appropriate time whether inside or outside of the sim center.”
