B-Line Medical(TM) and the Center for Medical Simulation Announce Partnership
Date:9/10/2007

Relationship Continues in CMS' Longstanding Tradition of Innovation in

Simulation by Aligning with Leading Technology Provider

SILVER SPRING, Md. and CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- B-Line Medical, LLC and the Center for Medical Simulation (CMS) today announced that they are partnering to provide a state-of-the-art simulation solution for the facility's already cutting edge simulation programs. B-Line Medical will be installing their SimCenter(TM)/SimCube(TM) solution in CMS' simulation facility in Cambridge, MA, adjacent to the MIT campus. The system will facilitate a greater degree of fidelity in capture and recording of encounters, as well as providing a strong platform for more effective outcome-based analysis across a wide variety of simulation scenarios. CMS was founded by the hospitals affiliated with Harvard Medical School and expects to use B-line Medical's system to provide a coordinated platform across the simulation facilities at each of the institutions.

"We look forward to working with CMS to enhance the effectiveness and usability of their simulation offerings," said B-Line Medical CEO Chafic Kazoun. "Considering that they are one of the most respected, pioneering providers of simulation training in the world, their selection of SimCenter(TM)/SimCube(TM) as a software platform highlights the simulation community's growing recognition of B-Line Medical as the number one solution provider in this market space."

Like CMS, simulation programs worldwide are now undergoing an aggressive phase of investigation into the potential for applying digital recording and evaluation solutions to both existing and proposed facilities. The SimCenter(TM) and SimCube(TM) solutions are an effective mechanism for easily capturing and evaluating both video and simulator telemetry from a wide variety of simulation devices, including high fidelity mannequins, virtual reality simulators, part task trainers, and various medical devices. In addition, these solutions provide evaluation/reporting, annotation, user management, and scheduling functionality. Both of these products unequivocally lead the industry in innovation, ease of use, and market share, having been selected by 30% of all US medical schools and a growing number of hospitals and nursing programs.

Dr. Jeffrey Cooper, Executive Director of CMS, said "We are very excited to be working with B-Line Medical on this project. This is an opportunity to take our simulation activities to a new level that will benefit both simulation participants and faculty, allowing for significant performance efficiencies and ease-of-use advantages. B-Line's expertise in software development and extensive experience in developing and supporting simulation facilities make them a unique partner, which will be of great value to CMS moving forward."
