Siemens Healthineers, Skillable and MetaVRse Win Bronze in 2022 Brandon Hall Group Excellence in Technology Awards

Toronto, Ontario, Canada, February 23, 2023 – MetaVRse is proud to announce that the company has been awarded the 2022 Brandon Hall Group Bronze award for excellence in the Best Advance in Education Through Technology category, along with Siemens Healthineers in Canada and Skillable. The three companies were recognized for their work on the RAPIDPoint® 500e Educational Digital Twin experience.

RAPIDPoint® 500e is an end-to-end blood gas system solution that delivers reliable, fast, and accurate results within 60 seconds. These operator-friendly analyzers are intended for near-patient care and thereby reduce the daily medical device management burden.

With a huge global install base of several thousand instruments, the requirements for training significantly increased globally due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Before the pandemic, training was delivered via in-person onsite events in regional training centers or virtually as live instructor-led events. The combination of a significantly increased training demand, in times of travel restrictions and health and safety measures, necessitated a scalable change to the learning experience.

“Siemens Healthineers seized an opportunity to provide a digitalized hands-on learning experience, also known as an educational digital twin, in medical product education through 3D immersive solutions,” wrote Dr. Janina Beilner, Senior Vice President Education Services at Siemens Healthineers. “The digitalization efforts exemplified in this project ensured that learning outcomes are the same as traditional onsite events, if not better, while also driving productivity within the country organizations and maintaining training satisfaction.”

“As the global workforce ages and new technologies continue to emerge at an exponential pace, global enterprises are turning to innovative tools like 3D virtual learning to keep up with the rapid pace of change,” said Julie Smithson, co-founder and COO of MetaVRse. “Siemens Healthineers is a leading force in the future of learning, and we’re excited to support their mission to help healthcare practitioners deliver lifesaving diagnostics to the patients who need them.”


Siemens Healthineers is a global provider of healthcare medical devices, based in Germany, combining almost 200 years of expertise and success in the field of healthcare solution provider, being represented in more than 70 countries worldwide. With a team of more than 66,000 employees, Siemens Healthineers develops, manufacturers, and sells a diverse range of innovative diagnostic and imaging products and services to healthcare providers.


Skillable is a full-stack, adaptable virtual lab platform helps their customers incorporate hands-on learning into software or platform training to accelerate product adoption. Supported by real-time scoring, instant feedback for learners and performance analytics for managers, you go from “thinking they can” to “confidently proving they can”. Siemens Healthineers partnered with Skillable to integrate the LMS system into Siemens Healthineers’ main infrastructure for employee evaluation.


MetaVRse Inc. is a game engine and universal 3D creation tool with the ability to deploy 3D experiences through the web and integrate into enterprise systems. MetaVRse Studio developed learning experiences with 3D models and procedure configurations then deployed them as labs through integration into the LMS virtual machine.
