CAE Healthcare wins five new training
MONTREAL – CAE Healthcare announced
that it was awarded five new contracts to supply its new CAE Owl
simulation centre management system. This solution is designed to
improve the efficiency of simulation centre activities.
Contracts were signed with the Universite de Montreal, Universite Laval,
the Michener Institute for Applied Health Sciences, the University of
Ottawa and the Hopital Sacre-Coeur de Montreal (HSCM).
The systems will be used to record and debrief simulated operating and
emergency room training sessions. They will help manage training
activities in up to 50 rooms composed of simulation equipment, real
hospital equipment and patient-actors.
“We are delighted to offer our first simulation centre management
solution for the healthcare industry to these preeminent institutions,”
said Guillaume Herve, President of CAE Healthcare. “The CAE Owl can be
customized to meet the different needs of our customers while reducing
costs and improving the efficiency of their operations.
“This product is a great example of CAE Healthcare leveraging CAE’s
technologies and adapting them to healthcare,” Herve said. “It also
shows that the healthcare community is recognizing the value of bringing
best practices from simulation-based aviation training to improve the
way healthcare professionals learn.”
