Session Abstract

Many HTM/clinical engineering departments feel like they cannot get started or perhaps even have no role to play in the development of use cases for augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) technology. This presentation will demonstrate a very practical use case of the technology that has high value to most hospital organizations – physician recruitment, retention and training/learning effectiveness. Come see how an immersive training experience not only bends the curve in terms of effectiveness, but it will also help reinvent it. Learn some new tricks of the trade that can help your physician partners become better at what they do. Want to really impact patient care? You won’t want to miss this!
