Abstract

Health Information Technology & Simulation Lab (HITS Lab) is an interprofessional effort aimed at enhancing consumer and professional health education through the advancement of health information technology. The HITS Lab brings together expertise from multiple disciplines to promote active simulated learning and the development and testing of new health technology. The lab’s latest development is the Interactive Debriefing Application (IDA). This tablet application will engage students as they observe medical simulations. The IDA will transform students from passive to active observers as they engage with what they are seeing in the simulation. The application will also enhance the face-to-face debriefing session by allowing teachers to breakdown the aggregated result of the student’s involvement. All the data from this will be accessible through the student’s dashboard. Furthermore, by visually reforming the way students engage in this kind of educational environment, teachers can cultivate a more productive and efficient learning experience.
