The Vision of Lumis
After recognizing the devastating impact of medical errors on individuals, families and institutions, the leadership at Lumis recognized the need for more accessible training techniques to significantly eliminate many of these errors. Lumis was founded in 2017 to address this critical mission.
Built on years of R&D conducted at the University of Pittsburgh, a leading center for healthcare innovation, Lumis aims to disrupt traditional clinical and healthcare training by making it more immersive, accessible, and efficient.
The contribution of founding faculty, John O’ Donnell and Joseph Samosky, with their deep experience in simulation-based education and engineering design was instrumental towards the company realizing their vision.
Democratize healthcare education to reduce the frequency of medical errors and improve patient outcomes.
