Healthcare major Apollo Hospitals Group, on Thursday, announced its collaboration with California-based deep tech start-up, 8chili Inc, to enable patient engagement in the metaverse.
The cooperation will offer pre/post-operation patient counseling using virtual reality (VR). Allowing for enhanced patient participation as well as giving skill mastery for hands-on training for healthcare staff. It is a first-of-its-kind project in the healthcare business.
In a virtual news conference to launch the partnership, Prathap C Reddy, Chairman of Apollo Hospitals Group, noted that patient expectations are continuing to rise. Moreover, that healthcare providers must continue to adopt emerging technology to give the best possible care.
“After digitalisation and Artificial Intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR) has emerged as the third piece in allowing the delivery of precision medicine to patients. As well as continuing healthcare professional training,” he added.
Apollo Hospitals may utilize 8chili’s HintVR platform to engage users (patients) in virtual reality-mediated activities to improve their ability to control emotion. Patient satisfaction will improve as a result of this personalized approach to each patient.
“People learn best by doing, which is why immersive VR training in healthcare is a perfect match”. The findings back up the equality and superiority of virtual reality training. As well as the reduced time to skill acquisition and cost savings when compared to traditional approaches. In addition, Sangita Reddy, Apollo Hospitals’ Joint Managing Director, stated; “We strongly feel 8chili’s platform lets us provide VR immersive training at scale and efficiency.”
