Market Analysis: Are VR Medical Simulations Ready to Scale?
Howard Rose in HealthySimulation.com
If we judge the maturity of the VR industry to meet the demands of medicine only from social media success stories, it’s easy to assume we’re already way down the road. But measuring the actual temperature of the VR healthcare simulation sector requires a closer look. How ready is the entire venture of VR to meet the demands of medicine at a national – or I dare say – global scale? Are med schools and clinicians ready to adopt? Where the technology falls short, what barriers must we cross to achieve the benefits this innovation has to offer?
To help map the landscape of high points and barriers I turned to a diverse group of thought leaders working at the front line of healthcare simulation research, clinical practice, and business.
