Supporting the global healthcare advocates in our community
B-Line Medical's Charitable Fund's mission is to dedicate our technology and resources to the global healthcare advocates and leaders in our community with the goal of improving the quality of healthcare worldwide.
B-Line Medical's SimCapture Ultraportable product is made available to Charitable Fund partners allowing for an all-inclusive and portable capture system for video-driven improvement and research.
Product training, field support, and research design / checklist creation support are just a few of the personnel support services B-Line Medical offers to its Charitable Fund partners.
B-Line Medical knows there are numerous expenses associated with worthy causes that can't be covered with equipment donations or personnel support.
Outfitting Mercy Ships with SimCapture
After initially meeting with Mercy Ships at IMSH in 2016, B-Line Medical's Charitable Fund made an easy choice to donate four SimCapture Nodes for Mercy Ships latest vessel for the purpose of educational capture and leave behind instruction.
For the first time, a Mercy Ship will include a simulation theater in addition to surgical theaters. The goal is to train local doctors on the procedures being performed on the ship. The SimCapture units will allow for a comprehensive leave behind package that doctors can review and refer to as needed. As Mercy Ships' website states, they offer the world’s largest civilian hospital ship and state-of-the-art care to those in desperate need - free of charge.
