"We're very excited to be working in close collaboration with Kb Port on the continued development of MobilSIM(TM)," said Anurag Singh, President and CEO, Education Management Solutions, Inc. "This partnership shares a common goal of fostering innovation in technology for the benefit of hospitals, community colleges, one-to-two rooms, nursing programs, and facilities that have limited space or wish to conduct multi-disciplinary simulation training in the field."

MobilSIM(TM) is by far the coolest, easiest-to-use and set-up, most lightweight and affordable solution on the market. Web-based and wireless, MobilSIM(TM) digitally records a simulation event, integrates with high-fidelity simulators, manages participants, allows bookmarking and annotation of live and recorded video, provides immediate debriefing after recording, allows skills assessment, permits the export of raw scores, and much more.

"Additionally, Kb Port clients with multiple rooms utilizing the ETC advanced video capture system will now be able to integrate with EMS' Total Skills Center(TM) and Total SIM(TM) enterprise applications to manage an entire clinical skills and simulation center," continued Anurag Singh.

"We're delighted to be working with EMS. This strategic partnership combines the strengths of Kb Port and EMS to deliver innovative technologies that provide added value to Kb Port's ETC clients who wish to incorporate EMS' assessment, scheduling, inventory management, scoring, reports, and other rich features to their existing installations," added Chuck Miller, President of Kb Port LLC.
