There is an ever-growing urgency to improve patient safety and provide quality care in an efficient manner. Point-of-care ultrasound has been shown to improve clinical acumen and diagnostic accuracy, enabling clinicians to make more informed decisions and provide superior patient care. Ultrasound applications continue to expand, and the spectrum of users now includes virtually every type of practitioner, ranging from out-of-hospital care providers and nurses, to primary care physicians and subspecialists.
Implementing a clinical bedside ultrasound program is a multi-step process that requires integrating multiple elements and services. Ultrasound education and training is a cornerstone of this multifaceted “ultrasound ecosystem”. The SonoSim® Ultrasound Training Solution is a proven-effective method of overcoming this critical barrier to ultrasound adoption. SonoSim also realizes that several other critical elements are required for creation of a successful ultrasound program.
As such, SonoSim is partnering with the following industry leaders to provide comprehensive support and services for those seeking to implement or expand their clinical ultrasound programs.

Founded in 1947, AAFP promotes and maintains high quality standards for family doctors who are providing continuing comprehensive health care to the public.
We had three clear goals when we set out to develop Clarius: to deliver an ultra-portable system for medical professionals that does not compromise on image quality; to remove the cords that get in the way, and to make sure the Clarius App offers the flexibility to work reliably with both iOS and Android smart devices,” said Clarius CEO, Laurent Pelissier.
SonoSim, Inc. announced that it has entered into an agreement with GE Healthcare, a leading provider of ultrasound technology globally.

Sonex Health was founded by Mayo Clinic physicians Darryl Barnes, MD and Jay Smith, MD and business operations expert Aaron Keenan in 2014. The three were brought together by a shared desire to create safe and effective treatments for common orthopedic conditions that would improve the patient experience and practice efficiency while reducing costs. Sonex Health, LLC has developed the SX-One MicroKnife® with Meerkat Technology® to treat carpal tunnel syndrome in a novel fashion, termed Micro-invasive Carpal Tunnel Release. This innovation allows carpal tunnel release, a procedure that once took place in an operating room, to be safely and effectively performed through a small incision (<5mm) in a surgery center or office setting, resulting in rapid patient recovery and reduced costs.
