Pass the RCE by using MEKSI: a computer-based clinical simulator of patient consultations.
The user logs in on a computer or device.
A realistic virtual standardised patient appears on the screen. They look like a video of a real person.
Using natural language, the user can speak or type their questions to take a patient history. The virtual patient understands the questions and answers them.
The user takes history, makes clinical investigation, conducts a physical examination of the, makes a differential diagnosis, orders tests, and creates a management plan.
Using Google Voice and artificial intelligence from IBM Watson Health, the virtual standardised patient delivers objectivity superior to human role play.
After each simulated patient consultation, there is a debriefing session where the artificial intelligence gives constructive feedback.
MEKSI offers a valid and reliable framework for universities and medical recruiters, to assess competency.
