September 15, 2021, New York – Nasco Healthcare is excited to announce the launch of our global strategic partnership agreement with SKILLQUBE GmbH to bring the most realistic patient monitoring and medical device emulation solutions available to the marketplace.  

Nasco Healthcare will now jointly develop, sell, and distribute SKILLQUBE products globally in top markets. This collaborative partnership was made possible through a shared passion for supporting frontline heroes globally. Lead by Georg Hirsch, COO, Skillqube and Hugo Azevedo, Sr. VP, Innovation & Business Development, Nasco Healthcare, both companies are excited for future joint product development and distribution opportunities.

SKILLQUBE has been at the top of the innovation game by creating very realistic emulations of real and commonly used medical devices like Patient Monitors/Defibrillators (qubeSeries) and Transport Ventilators (qubeMS2), fully integrated with their line of audio-visual debriefing equipment (qubeAVGo and qubeAVPro). Over the years they have developed a solid reputation as medical simulation experts. SKILLQUBE offers tremendous value in medical education and training to support healthcare workers and first responders properly as they transition from training to real-life scenarios. 

“We are looking forward to working with the Nasco Healthcare Team. This Alliance will help to market and develop our qubeSERIES globally. With our collective experience and innovative product development, we will revolutionize the global medical simulation market.” Julia Wallburg, CEO, SKILLQUBE GmbH

SKILLQUBE’s commitment to Making it Real complements Nasco Healthcare’s mission to prepare frontline healthcare workers to Be READY to deliver optimal patient outcomes and save lives, whenever and wherever they are called. Healthcare workers and first responders need world class training to give their patients the best chance to survive and thrive. Our mandate is to keep that happening consistently. 

After observing the evolution of the healthcare sector, we have decided that now is the right time to expand our range of products and services to better respond to industry needs. This is a great brand to bring under the Nasco Healthcare banner and offers us potential in all the markets we serve. The SKILLQUBE range will bolster our core offering and further defines our footprint as the ‘one-stop shop’ supplier to work within the healthcare simulation market.” Lee Johnson, Global Vice President, Nasco Healthcare
