LIMA — What will health care education look like in the future? Rhodes State College worked to answer that question during its Innovation Showcase held Wednesday.
Throughout the day, the event featured a number of presentations by health care technology vendors, who highlighted some of the latest health care teaching tools that may someday fill Rhodes State College’s scheduled downtown expansion.
“Today, Rhodes State is showcasing some of the newest simulation technology and software that will change the teaching paradigm and significantly enhance student learning,” Rhodes Interim President Dr. Cynthia Spiers said in a statement. “Today’s learners are seeking interactive learning, and this Showcase brings the ‘WOW’ of innovation that Rhodes State envisions for the new Center for Health Science Education and Innovation.”
New technologies featured during the innovation fair include an ambulance simulation by Simulator Solutions, an anatomy visualization table by Anatomage, interactive MRI software by BodyViz, advanced patient simulators by Gaumard, scenario simulations by MultiTaction, a medication management system by Pyxis MedStation, rehabilitation harnesses by Solo-Step and an overview of three-dimensional printing.
A number of visual renderings of the Center for Health Science Education and Innovation were also available for event attendees. The downtown project to be located by Lima’s town square is scheduled to break ground sometime this winter.
