RASimAs (Regional Anaesthesia Simulator and Assistant) is a EU FP7 project that aims at increasing the application, the effectiveness and the success rates of regional anaesthesia by developing two independent but complementary systems, one system for training by using patient-specific computer models, and one for guidance in the assistance of nerve’s location during the actual intervention. In this context, the present document focuses on the training system, which will be deployed in multiple participating hospitals that will be connected to a central information system. In particular, this paper deals with the software architecture of the aforementioned integrated environment and the components that constitute it. We present indicative key components and functionalities such as the user authentication and authorization service, the user profile and performance metrics management service, the role based access control system, the VPH (Virtual Physiological Human) library, and the synchronization between the training centres and the central information system.
