AliveSim Results Published in Diabetes, a Journal of the America Diabetes Association


This paper by Robinson, et al, demonstrates a 400% improvement in clinical decision making within AliveSim through corrective mentoring, a unique feature of the platform.

A snapshot from the paper: “A total of 765 primary care providers (PCPs) and 103 endocrinology providers participated in the simulation. Across all four simulations, only 15% of decisions were optimal on the first selection. At baseline, the most challenging topics were evaluating comorbidities and optimizing the use of SGLT-2 inhibitors (13% and 3% optimal decisions made, respectively). However, after corrective mentoring, there was a 400% relative increase in optimal decisions made."

How to Evaluate Immersive Technologies Against Organizational Needs. Many L&D organizations are struggling with how to evaluate virtual and other immersive technologies for their learning and training initiatives. Options abound, and with a lot of pressure on corporate training organizations to include VR in their training, today's learning leaders need help in choosing the right solution. A successful evaluation process includes: 1) understanding of how to establish organizational and learner needs criteria to evaluate the immersive technology options, 2) knowing the strengths of the different approaches from both a cognitive science and technical perspective, and 3) recognizing the impacts of how the technology is brought into the organization. The best way to illustrate this process is through hands-on examples in diverse learning situations.
