Technology continues to usher in a profound change in every industry, including healthcare. According to the Accenture Digital Health Technology Vision 2021 report, 81% of healthcare executives said the pace of digital transformation within their organization is accelerating.
One of the biggest elements of change? Artificial intelligence (AI). AI’s place in healthcare will be specifically important for training and education. According to a recent report by PwC, AI will enable those seeking training and education in healthcare to experience real-world simulations and interactions. At the same time, the reports find that AI will enable this training to be conducted from more locations.
One key AI-driven technology that is driving the future of healthcare education, is holographic technology:
Dr. Hologram couples holographic technology with the patient experience library to give students the opportunity to practice the art of interacting with patients and caregivers.
The goal of combining this technology with teaching is to develop providers who can:
- Connect with their patients in a way that makes them feel understood and cared for, which ultimately increases patient satisfaction.
- Clearly communicate with patients in a way the patient understands.
- Empower their patients in their own care. Providers who allow patients to have a voice in their treatment are more likely to enjoy improved patient-provider relations and ‘buy-in’ to the treatment process, which often leads to better treatment outcomes.
