04/05/2023 – About the Topic
We are thrilled to announce our upcoming event on the intersection of virtual reality, augmented reality, and patient-driven health, exploring The Next Evolution in healthcare.
We are at a pivotal time in medicine. Advancements in Precision Medicine, Genomics, and Synthetic Biology are accelerating our understanding of diseases like cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s. At the same time, real clinical data and patient outcomes continue to demonstrate that immersive technologies like virtual reality, augmented reality, and even mixed reality are no longer an experimental use case. Immersive technologies are proving to be an integral part of the patient experience for years to come.
Whether you work as a creator in XR, ARVR in the immersive industry, are an investor, provide direct patient care, are a CMO, a hospital administrator, clinical researcher, or patient advocate, you will not want to miss The Next Evolution’s upcoming event exploring Patient Driven Health.
Join us as we explore the next evolution in healthcare and the need to reimagine the patient experience. We’ll delve into what patient-driven health means, who is leading the way in taking immersive applications to the bedside, the surgical theater, the research lab, and the patient home.
