AliveSim creates safe opportunities to virtually practice and receive personalized corrective mentoring, two essential components of skill-driven learning that drive behavior change.
Because AliveSim captures thousands of learner decisions, it can report on clinical preferences, where learners needed the most mentoring, and in-depth insights via cohort analysis.
Personal experience changes behaviors. One must feel confident they have the skill to apply new knowledge, in the right situations, without causing harm. That’s when their behavior changes.
Skill development is the proven way to overcome these barriers to change. It’s used effectively in the military, aviation, business, and medical education. AliveSim gives CME educators a way to use this learning modality in an economical, scalable way.
Use AliveSim when the goal is to transition physicians from awareness to using new clinical knowledge in their practice.
The AliveSim platform is used by our MECC and medical society collaborators as a standalone experience (with knowledge, practice, and coaching) or coupled with separate knowledge-based activities to reinforce acquired knowledge and safely practice using it.
The disease states where AliveSim has been shown to be effective is growing.
Oncology | Endocrinology | Infectious Disease | Dermatology | Sleep Medicine | Neurology | Respiratory | Rheumatology | Gastrointestinal | Ophthalmology | Blood Disorders | Immunology and Allergy | Renal Disease | Cardiovascular
AliveSim programs have received recurring support from most of the pharmaceutical industry.
AliveSim can utilized to close many types of performance gaps in continuing medical education. Below are a few Performance Gaps along with the AliveSim Strategy used to close the gap.
Often physicians have their “go to” options. They experience how to use new options with expert mentoring on when to use them.
Participants interact with multidisciplinary team members to experience how the roles interact in successful disease management.
As participants make virtual treatment decisions, they learn through nuanced feedback, the sequencing strategies experts use.
By working with virtual peers to treat patients with different biomarkers, one understands when to use new targeted therapies.
Participants consider therapy options in virtual scenarios and experience when biologics are appropriate via expert mentoring.
Front line physicians gain virtual experience recognizing a rare condition, referring to a specialist, and participating in management.
Virtual scenarios enable participants to practice linking appropriate staging to new optimal treatment strategies with expert feedback.
Nuanced, expert feedback on each decision allows participants to learn how to modify treatment strategies for patients with comorbidities.
Each AliveSim scenario emphasizes shared decision making by design and when needed, it can also illustrate what great SDM looks like.
Faculty comment on how deep AliveSim decision-making scenarios go.
Scenarios are designed to enable learners to recognize the decision patterns of experts.
Collaborators and faculty provide the medical expertise and AliveSim brings it to life!
Ready to try AliveSim for your next CME program?
AliveSim captures thousands of learner decisions to measure how well they performed in realistic clinical situations.
The ACEHP Almanac posted a Syandus article entitled: Incorporating Skill Development in CME via Corrective Mentoring.
This article contains many examples of AliveSim Outcomes.
We are proud to report that this article was selected as the top article by the Almanac Editorial Board for 2021.

By practicing in three scenarios with expert mentoring on their decisions, participants improved their ability to recognize optimal decision patterns that experts use. Click here to see more data like this.
AliveSim allows learners to safely try new strategies in realistic situations and then gives them personalized, expert coaching on each of their decision. More on cognitive apprenticeship.
It's like having their own personal mentor there with them.
Syandus won multiple Small Business Innovation Research awards from the National Science Foundation that fueled the development of the AliveSim platform. It's now a stable, proven, platform for effective learning in healthcare and corporate training.
