The University of Massachusetts Medical School is collaborating with Microsoft to research how the virtual reality tool, HoloLens, could help teach doctors anatomy and educate patients.
@josephinemunis @theVRARA @candylabtweets join us to discuss the future of #augmentedreality and its application in the #healthcare and #medical industries beyond training. The Digital Jam Sessions cover a combination of different industries and expertise to create unique discussions, views and collaborations that create a new “digital melting pot” of diverse flavoursome topics. We’ll be focusing on entertainment and new startups but you'll also find topic areas such as #AR (augmented reality), #VR (virtual reality), #movies, #games, #mobile, #tech, #wearables, #ARG, #Immersive entertainment and much more. You never know who we'll get into the mix.

The fields of medicine, healthcare and wellness have long embraced the use of new technology to improve patient outcomes and quality of life. The introduction of Augmented Reality-assisted systems is going hand in hand with the increase in real time data we are able to capture and analyze about the body. In this Webinar a framework for how Augmented Reality (AR) is used for visualization of medical and health data, and the measurable benefits of having the data in context, are introduced. Examples illustrate the different approaches available today as well as what to expect in the future. We will present some of the results of preliminary studies into AR-assisted medical procedures and offer insights into where the technology introduction is most likely to encounter obstacles as well as support from different stakeholders in the health and wellness ecosystem. Healthcare practitioners, medical technologists and managers of health facilities will be able to apply what they learn in this Webinar to their own processes and address challenges they face when bringing together technical information and the patient which that data concerns. You will learn: • What processes are considered the most suitable for AR-assisted systems? • What metrics are being used to evaluate the impact of AR in medicine, healthcare and wellness? • How is AR introduced into healthcare pilot projects? • What are obstacles to introducing AR in medicine, healthcare and wellness?
