Virtual Reality is Healing Healthcare in America

The future of healthcare in America remains uncertain as different policies and regulations are being sorted out. However, new technology and virtual reality could play an important role in the future of healthcare.

In an article from Fortune, author Jay Samit writes, “ People over the age of 65 will soon make up 55% of the nation’s population, causing a shortage of 40,800 to 100,000 physicians. Luckily, advances in technologies such as virtual reality, wearable devices, and 5G may provide both an affordable alternative and improved quality of life including better personal care monitoring, more effective treatment, and a helping hand in the operating room”.

In the article, Samit discusses:

  • Empowering personal health
  • Enabling new treatment strategies
  • Bringing expertise and treatment to where it’s needed most
  • Paving the way for better care

Samit continues, “Thanks to the research and experimentation going on today, and as wearable digital reality hardware becomes more affordable, we can use it to prevent and treat chronic illnesses and thereby improve quality of life”. One thing is clear- the future of healthcare is up to technology.
