Secure access to track/record individual learner provider-patient communication skills performance.
Secure access to track/record team interaction skills performance.
Cloud syncing and secure remote instructor access for review, assessment, and feedback.
English, French, German and Spanish RLSimApp screen and facilitator portal language localizations are standard features.
