“Jon and the team at Arch Virtual represent a unique group of thought leaders within the simulation, multi-media paradigm. Many companies have jumped into the XR space, but few understand it’s potential and embrace it with the expertise that Arch Virtual has to offer…I have been fortunate to work on several projects with Arch Virtual including the Award winning Best-in-Show VR Airway management training module at the International Meeting (IMSH) (link), as well as projects for Envision Experience (link).
Dr. Bauman also had the following to say about joining Arch Virtual and helping grow the Acadicus VR training platform:
“I am excited to join the team to introduce and leverage Arch Virtual and the Acadicus platform to meet stakeholders needs across the health professions, public health and safety verticals,” he added. “This is a wonderful opportunity to collaborate with the many eager thought leaders and change agents throughout the healthcare simulation and patient safety ecosystem to truly use technology in ways that are translational and transformative…ways that really affect patient outcomes.”
