Books, lessons, classes, lectures, videos, webinars, discussions, research papers… the list is endless. The sea of resources at the disposal of healthcare professionals can help acquire knowledge and build upon their intellectual base. However, when it comes to putting all those years of studies and acquired knowledge to practice, one particular thing matters the most – confidence. How does one gain that confidence? Merely through reading and observing? Not really. In a practical field like healthcare, it is practice that matters a lot. Practice not only helps polish upon skills and gain confidence but also provides the much-needed experience.
Devoid of the required practice sessions, the confidence of many healthcare workers is suffering a serious setback. They often find themselves unsure and unconfident of performing core procedure individually even after course completion and certification. Needless to say, this can lead to severe consequences, both for the professional and for the patient.
MedVR Education understand the gravity of the situation and is a step towards bridging this gap between knowledge and confidence for healthcare professionals. MedVR Education also realizes that in the field of healthcare there is no room for mistake. To ensure safe, certain and assured medical care every healthcare professional must be given enough practice to handle situations with confidence and surety.
So, what is MedVR Education?
MedVR Education is an XR platform designed to offer off-the-shelf VR training programs in the field of patient care and healthcare management.
Environment – All programs are set in photorealistic virtual environments giving a close-to-reality real-world experience. The provision of multiple practice sessions helps serve as a skill-building base for all learners, enabling them to get seasoned and well-trained in the field.
Feedback/Analysis – Feedback is essential to judge one’s progress and this is provided in the form of data analytics. Learners can track their own progress, identify weak areas and work upon improvements. Instructors, from their end, can track the progress of each learner for every competency in a lesson and, based on the results generated, provide customized, learner-specific feedback.
Learner profile – This platform can be used by universities and healthcare institutions as part of their education programs, blended into the curriculum, and can easily be integrated into the existing learning management system (LMS).
