Human Circuit to Integrate Cutting Edge Media and Technology Solutions for the Howard University Health Sciences Simulation Center

GAITHERSBURG, Md., Oct. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Human Circuit announced its collaboration with B-Line Medical to integrate cutting edge media and technology solutions for the Simulation Center's Management System at Howard University.

Bruce Kaufmann, chief executive officer for Human Circuit, said the company's systems are designed to maximize the full potential of B-Line Medical's software.

"We are confident that we will provide the optimal turn-key solution for managing and operating the Howard University Health Sciences Simulation Center Management System," Kaufmann said. "No other systems integrator has developed simulation centers that utilize the advanced network enabled digital video distribution topology and equipment pioneered by Human Circuit."

To better prepare health sciences students for careers as healthcare providers, simulation and clinical skills training facilities offer hands-on opportunities in clinical situations. These facilities digitally record and store student performance footage on video servers so that administrators and instructors can view and evaluate students in real-time.

B-Line Medical and Human Circuit have integrated video and audio equipment into several of these types of facilities and applied designs and applications specifically for case study rooms, self-teaching labs, patient exam rooms, observation rooms and the AV control and computer rooms.

The technology within the simulation center is a web-based digital solution that allows faculty to capture, debrief and assess student encounters. The video allows the faculty to assess the learners and provide feedback, but most importantly, it allows learners the opportunity to self-assess their skills. There is a master control room that acts as a central location for managing the technology.

Human Circuit has extensive working experience with healthcare institutions and teaching hospitals. "One example is the Johns Hopkins Medicine Simulation Center in Baltimore," said Jim Hatcher, Human Circuit chief technology officer. "This project is one of many that represent the quality of work that Human Circuit and B-Line Medical can provide," Hatcher said. "It highlights our ability to collaborate with an architect and general contractor as well as a university or hospital IT department, institution project manager and end user – resulting in successful project implementation. "It is a privilege to add Howard University to our long list of prestigious clients."
