Have you ever wished that doctors, nurses & allied health professionals had better communication skills?

We have, that’s why we built SimConverse, a world-first communication training platform, enabled by bleeding edge AI technology.

Ineffective communication among healthcare professionals is one of the leading causes of medical errors and patient harm, with around 70% of medical errors attributed to communication breakdowns.

About us

SimConverse is an Australian AI-powered MedTech start-up, founded in 2020 by Aiden Roberts and Will Pamment. The pair met back in Medical School at the University of Sydney. The two experienced first-hand the need for better communication skills training for healthcare learners.

By combining Aiden's 10+ years worth of pioneering AI work and experience in MedTech with Will's industry-leading clinical education PhD, the two started SimConverse to improve workforce-level communication skills training with Generative Artificial Intelligence.

Communication is the number one determinant of the quality of care a patient will receive. Without good communication you cannot treat, you cannot diagnose, and you cannot provide care. Aiden Roberts CEO & Co-founder (right)

Despite being less than 3 years old SimConverse has:

🌏 150 enterprise customers across the globe including Harvard University in the US, the NHS in the UK, and QLD Health in Aus.

⬆️ 10x growth in the last 6 months alone.

How does it work?

SimConverse digitises healthcare education and communication skills training using generative artificial intelligence.

AI is used to play the role of a patient, colleague or family member in verbal communications to train the healthcare workforce at a fraction of the current cost, which involves the use of actors.

Why our customers love us

Our AI trains the vital verbal and para-verbal foundations of communication. Verbal is what you’re saying (words and grammatical structure) Para-verbal equals how you’re saying it (tone, cadence, inflection).

We build out our customers entire curriculum at no cost. We’ve built 1000’s of course-specific scenarios for our partner organisations.

Accessibility and applicability are in the SimConverse DNA. Learners can access the platform from any device, anywhere.

We do all the grading and feedback for all customers, regardless of the size of the cohort. We save valuable educator time with AI marking rubrics and provide comprehensive personalised feedback to all learners.

Integrate any follow-up activities for learners. From Multi-Choice Questions to Short Answers or Extended Responses, the platform can do it all.

Learners need reflection in order to improve. We employ Gibbs Self-Reflection Cycle in all our scenarios to support learning.

“Healthcare systems are smart; they know the importance of good communication but haven’t had the tools to train their staff. With AI, we’re able to train everyone in the system – doctors, nurses, allied health and supporting professionals – and we’re able to do so at software prices for human actor results.”
