Recent, real-world case studies in virtual reality (VR) hold promise for medical training as well as operational support. Organizations like the US Army, VA, medical schools, and private hospital systems are exploring new uses. VR is an umbrella term for other areas including augmented reality ("AR") and 3-D. VR and AR technology have advanced to the point where consumer facing immersive VR experiences are accessible at reasonable price points. So far, VR has gotten traction in healthcare mainly as a training and education device, but industry-wide it’s a green field for innovation. We’ve only scratched the surface of VR’s potential to disrupt healthcare delivery. New revenue, cost savings and quality gains can be captured from VR across multiple verticals–health system, provider, pharma, payer and consumer. VR can leverage techniques to weave itself into the fabric of healthcare delivery-gamification, social media, narrative, visioning, goal setting and rewards.
