What does the Future of Healthcare Look Like
The use of virtual reality is changing the lives of both patients and healthcare professionals. The primary application of VR at the moment is in the training of future surgeons. Thanks to virtual reality, they can practice what it's like to perform actual surgeries better than ever before.
Fremont, CA: From a greater emphasis on quality care to the use of technologies such as artificial intelligence and virtual reality, the healthcare industry is undergoing more transformation than one might think. But what does this mean for both patients and healthcare professionals in the future?
Wearable health and fitness trackers have grown in popularity in recent years. Fitness enthusiasts are no longer the only ones who track their heart rates and the number of steps they take in a day. People of all walks of life are beginning to recognize the value of health trackers. In the coming years, health trackers and other wearable technology will become the norm.
Healthcare professionals' monitoring technology is also becoming more sophisticated all the time. The Viatom CheckMe Pro, for example, is a palm-sized device that can measure heart rate, ECG, blood pressure, temperature, oxygen saturation, and much more. With the advancement of health monitoring technology, medical professionals will have more time to devote to patient care and will be able to make more accurate diagnoses.
The use of virtual reality is changing the lives of both patients and healthcare professionals. The primary application of VR at the moment is in the training of future surgeons. Thanks to virtual reality, they can practice what it's like to perform real surgeries better than ever before. According to a recent study, surgeons trained in virtual reality surgical procedures improved their overall performance by 230 percent compared to traditionally trained surgeons. The researchers also discovered that surgeons who had used virtual reality training were faster and more accurate in their surgical procedures. Obviously, this benefits both patients and surgeons, and as VR becomes more advanced, surgeons of the future will become more skilled, faster, and accurate.
