Impacting Global Health with an XR Model of Medical Training

Description

Analog simulation is broadly accepted in healthcare. Given the high costs of building and running a simulation center, facilities are generally in developed nations’ urban centers.

XR is fundamentally changing the dynamic: Learners are accessing expertise around the world in the mediverse. Traditional educational institutions are able to share their best practices in new and exciting ways.

The results? It should be more well trained healthcare institutions in more places around the world leading to better outcomes for patients globally.

Description

Clinical training has advanced over the years, and now with the adoption of technology we are able to accelerate human capability via precision simulation using virtual reality (VR) and as a result, advance pre-human competence in surgery and additional clinical environments to improve patient outcomes.

Haptic technology enables users to develop the knowledge of how it feels to perform a procedure correctly or incorrectly – helping to build muscle memory that is particularly important in advanced and precise surgical environments.

This session will discuss the value of Immersive VR and haptic technology environments and experiences that facilitate skills development and transfer, allowing medical device manufacturers to improve access and accelerate procedure and product adoption.

The session will cover the growing body of scientific evidence which demonstrates the value of VR vs. traditional training across various specialties. It will also provide real life case study examples of companies that implemented immersive VR training successfully and showed improvement in patient care while demonstrating significant ROI.
