SimKit®, founded by an Emergency Medicine physician, launched a subscription box of training tools that help clinicians develop muscle memory for critical but low-occurrence procedures.
PORTLAND, ME, June 22, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — SimKit, a new company based in Maine, launched its subscription box of training kits for emergency medicine clinicians on June 19th. Each box targets a different life-saving procedure that clinicians don’t often get to practice in the emergency department and includes portable and easy-to-use simulation kits, as well as a digital training curriculum and a database that clinicians can reference. The boxes are designed to sharpen skills in these procedures in as little as 30 minutes a month.
Emergency medicine clinicians – including doctors and residents – are expected to know what to do without hesitation, building off extensive training and years of experience. Despite this, many clinicians struggle to find an opportunity to practice life-saving procedures that don’t occur often in the emergency room.
Dr. Jason Hine founded SimKit to give clinicians a quick and easy way to retain their skills in these procedures. As a community-based emergency medicine physician, Dr. Hine took it upon himself to gather notes and find ways to practice his procedural skills.
“I started asking myself, ‘Shouldn’t all EM clinicians have a way to practice these skills?’. That’s why I started SimKit – so doctors don’t have to fight skill decay on their own,” says Dr. Hine.
Along with their portable, easy-to-use simulation models, SimKit comes with a digital curriculum that was designed in short 30-minute spaced repetition sessions to fit into the busy clinician’s day. Training can be done in the home, office, or hospital. They built their curriculum using evidence-based cognitive science to ensure that the lessons are easily remembered, even in the high-stress environment of the emergency department.
SimKit is offering a 12-month subscription, focusing on four critical procedures. The SimKit Subscription costs $75 a month and includes:
Portable simulation models for procedural practice
Point-of-care study aids to remind you of critical steps
Full access to their Regional Anesthesia Library
12 months of interactive learning sessions
SimKit is closing the gap in skill competency of low-occurrence procedures with its portable simulation models and short, digestible lessons.
