Augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) are two of the top-notch technologies that are spreading their wings at the speed of light. In the healthcare arena, AR/VR solutions are expanding the horizons of diagnostics and medical training by delivering highly engaging ways to visualize health and body mapping data, advanced risk assessments, and interactive portals for easy access to sensitive information. Today, AR/VR is enabling an entirely new perspective for the practice of medicine.
Moving forward, as AR/VR continues to evolve, healthcare professionals are poised to usher in an era where caregivers will interact with each other and their patients through realistic simulations that are backed by accurate patient data. The technologies will also facilitate precise and real-time collaborations among different specialists to markedly improve the interpretation of patient data and realize consistently positive clinical outcomes.
In this edition of Healthcare Tech Outlook, we present some of the most promising healthcare AR/VR solution providers. The issue features thought leadership articles from Gorm Lisby, Section Chief, Department of Clinical Microbiology, Hvidovre Hospital, Judy Bleiberg Remz, Director of Risk Adjustment Programs, Atrius Health, Martin Peuker, the CIO of Charité, and Laura Mrazik, Telehealth Manager, MaineGeneral Health. The edition also showcases innovative solutions from seeCOLe, an augmented reality health app that enables clinicians to leverage EHRs by performing EHR review and documentation through voice command. seeCOLe is powered by augmented reality devices, such as Google Glass, and allows the electronic health record to appear within the view of the clinician.
Leafing through these pages will give you comprehensive insights into the different AR/VR technologies in the healthcare industry that can help you foster an environment driven by cutting-edge and robust technology.
