Newswise — WASHINGTON, D.C. - April 26, 2019 - B-Line Medical, an industry leader in video-driven healthcare education and outcome improvement, is happy to support and promote National Minority Health Month.
As the United States has become increasingly diverse in the last century, much of the population belongs to a racial or ethnic minority group. Though health indicators such as life expectancy and infant mortality have improved for most Americans, some minorities experience a disproportionate burden of preventable disease, death, and disability compared to non-minorities. National Minority Health Month, hosted by the HHS Office of Minority Health, is raising awareness of minority health disparities and the important role an active lifestyle plays in keeping us healthy. Physical activity not only promotes positive health, but it also reduces the risk of chronic diseases and other conditions that are more common or severe among racial and ethnic minority groups.
In 2005, B-Line Medical was created by founders who saw a gap in healthcare technology and created a solution to administer and track Clinical Skills exams taken by every graduating Doctor of Medicine in the United States. This solution has been expanded upon and is now used around the globe to improve healthcare training and effect real and immediate improvement in the delivery of care. Today, B-Line Medical is a leading provider of healthcare education solutions for both simulated and live clinical care environments and is proud to support and promote National Minority Health Month with their clients and colleagues.
“When Lucas Huang and I started B-Line Medical, we had the benefit of opening our headquarters and hiring personnel in the Washington, D.C. area which has a very diverse and talented population.” says Co-Founder and CEO of B-Line Medical, Chafic Kazoun. “As we focus on hiring the right people for the job, no matter the background, the incredible diversity on our team is a key aspect to our company’s success and a reminder during National Minority Health Month that equal access to quality healthcare is everyone’s right.”
Founded in 2005, B-Line Medical’s SimCapture product is the definitive LMS for healthcare simulation. SimCapture’s cloud-based and on-premise solutions help over 500 global healthcare institutions schedule, capture, debrief, assess, and report on their simulation training and clinical quality improvement programs.
