"Immersive technologies, adopted from the gaming industry, are going to transform the quality and availability of training and communication across the healthcare industry.


Technologies often seen as gimmicks, such as virtual reality and 3D ‘games’, are now maturing to a stage where they are viable solutions to industry and business challenges, not only improving engagement but delivering better results at a lower cost.


Virtual Reality (VR) in particular has been used for some time, more notably in the surgical space. However, on the whole, the price of hardware and general accessibility of these training tools has limited mass adoption.
