Virtual reality and training in the post-Covid era

In recent years, virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and artificial intelligence (AI) have emerged as important tools for healthcare. Especially in this Covid-ridden society, these technologies have been utilized more than ever, especially in healthcare employee training. Healthcare Global Magazine shares an article, written by Leila Hawkins, about the emergence of VR in the Covid and post-Covid era. According to the article, the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) has noted as far back as 2010 that it was better for students to be trained by simulation tools before attempting any procedures on patients. That way there would be reduced errors and better safety measures for students in training. Founder and CEO of Vitri Dr. Alex Young explains how VR training is frequently used to train surgeons and soft skills training for health professionals at all stages. “We are more problem-focused than fixed to a specific specialty or type of technology, with an emphasis on capturing unique data insights that would be otherwise impossible with traditional training,” says Young. “Ultimately, the goal is to improve human performance and therefore patient safety, and organizations are more focused on this through the lens of COVID and the need for remote training to help employees now and in the future.”
