Newswise — Exton, Pennsylvania, [November 12, 2015]– Education Management Solutions (EMS), a pioneer in simulation management technology and audio-video systems for healthcare training, and Laerdal Medical, a leading provider of simulation solutions for healthcare, today announced several successful customer integrations of their respective software platforms - SIMULATIONiQ™ and LLEAP.

What's special about the integration? EMS users now have the power to manage all their Laerdal manikins with LLEAP, a single simulator instructor. They can automatically start and stop EMS' SIMULATIONiQ audio-video system for all manikins with just one LLEAP instead of several separate Laerdal platforms.

"EMS' relationship with Laerdal Medical spans more than 15 years, and continues to provide a seamless and positive experience for our mutual customers," says Anurag Singh, President and CEO of EMS. "We were the first software company to collaborate with Laerdal and complete the SIMULATIONiQ and LLEAP integration last year. Several of EMS' customers have already transitioned to LLEAP and are enjoying the ease of managing their simulation sessions."

"The integration of SIMULATIONiQ with LLEAP was seamless for our center. With the switch of a button the system functioned well. The needed folder had already been pushed out during the last update so all was in place and ready when we needed it." - Kathleen F. Ryan, M.D., FACP, Associate Professor of Medicine, Associate Dean for Medical Education-Simulation, Director, Medical Simulation Center, Drexel University College of Medicine, PA

"Laerdal and EMS technicians were on site simultaneously during the integration, which allowed for the best synchronization of LLEAP and SIMULATIONiQ. We are now using both systems effectively to run our simulation center." - Mary Kovarna, EdD, RN, Professor and Nursing Dept Chairperson, Nylen School of Nursing, Morningside College, IA

"Our upgrade to LLEAP was easy and we continue to capture our SimMan 3G events in SIMULATIONiQ without interruption." - Joshua Onia, Director, Network Simulation Center, St. Luke's University Health Network, Temple/St. Luke's University School of Medicine, PA

"The integration of LLEAP with EMS' SIMULATIONiQ platform is an example of how our two companies are working together to benefit our mutual customers," said Alf-Christian Dybdahl, Laerdal's Emergency Care Business Unit Director. "Laerdal is pleased that several EMS customers are already using LLEAP with SIMULATIONiQ. Both organizations are committed to ensuring a positive user experience that helps facilitate effective simulation sessions.

"The unification of our simulation instructor applications to one software platform provides for training, operational, and financial efficiencies. We realize that making simulation easier for customers also means integration with other systems in their sim labs. This is why we have developed a LLEAP SDK to help enable vendors in simulation education integrate their systems to LLEAP."
