According to Cystic Fibrosis News Today, Pro-ficiency has launched its ProPatient online training technology that uses simulation scenarios to educate patients and clinicians.

ProPatient, which uses videos to integrate people into a “choose your own adventure” type of simulation, helps patients search medical information, ask a virtual clinician questions and role-play different scenarios to improve their knowledge and skills.

Its CF program was funded through a grant from Denver-based National Jewish Health, which helped create the program. Also kicking in funds was pharmaceutical firm Vertex.
