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.

ClariusWe 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. Clarius started with a simple mission: to enable more clinicians to use ultrasound to improve patient care. Then we talked to users. We listened to physicians who wished for an ultrasound device that works with their iPhone. We heard from new users of ultrasound who asked for a device that is easy to use and more affordable. We talked to clinicians who have tried other handheld ultrasound devices and wanted better image quality and more flexibility.
