  1. Practical Steps for Moving Forward:Virtual Patients Chris Candler, M.D. MedBiquitous Annual Conference

  2. Virtual Patients Definition:An interactive computer simulation of real-life clinical scenarios for the purpose of medical training, education, or assessment. • Several schools are developing • Very costly to create • No common framework that would allow these virtual patients to be shared across systems

  3. Virtual Patient Architecture • Component based approach • Enables sharing and reuse of entire virtual patient or components • U of Edinburgh, Pittsburgh, NYU, Tufts, Karolinska Institute implementing

  4. A Time of Rapid Progress • Successful development of prototype VP specification (in testing) • Our thinking about utility, efficacy, and practicality has matured

  5. An Interest in Sharing • Outstanding VP development by many institutions – desire to share • Tufts grant from Hewlett Foundation to support open source VP player • Karolinska institute’s WebSP and new tool to support exchange of VPs across institutions • E-ViP Project: the emerging multi-national bank of Virtual Patients

  6. Virtual Patient Next Steps • Sustain excellent progress of MVP specification • Gain attention of other VP developers • Identify technical and educational challenges (and solutions) to sharing VPs • Patience “Americans always do the right thing . . . after they’ve tried everything else.” - Winston Churchill
