Augmented reality has many practical applications in health care, but it still lacks widespread adoption. Is the industry really ready for augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR)? We'll discuss:
- How AR/VR technology is currently being used for medical and consumer education, surgery, mental health, and patient relaxation therapy.
- Challenges to adoption, including costs, approval of medical devices, and patient privacy concerns.
- Potential future use cases for home health and telehealth, such as using technology to make online doctor consultations and virtual doctor visits seamless, realistic, and in real time.
Participants will learn how to move beyond the cool factor and where AR/VR could be going in health care.
The same cognitive technologies we've come to rely on in our personal lives and across health care organizations can now be put to work in Medicaid, helping agencies to cut costs and improve patient care.
