XRHealth, which used to be known as VRHealth, unveiled the telehealth VR/AR medical platform that connects doctors and patients from remote locations. Said platform allows doctors to continuously monitor vital data to both measure and determine a plan to achieve optimal health.
“With the roll out of 5G throughout the globe, the new technology implications for the telehealth industry are enormous,” Eran Orr, CEO of XRHealth, said in a statement. “Patients will be able to use high bandwidth technology like virtual reality or augmented reality anywhere they are located – whether in a rural or urban area. Healthcare will become much more affordable and accessible to anyone while innovation will be endless.”
The XRHealth telehealth platform allows patients to grant access to their healthcare data to key participants — doctors, caregivers, or family members — so that anyone crucial to their recovery process can monitor key medical insights. The loop of communication between doctors and patients can help medical experts pinpoint more precise healthcare plans based on real-time data.
“As a member of the Qualcomm XR Enterprise Program, XRHealth illustrates our program charter which connects our transformative technology such as 5G with innovative solutions like the Telehealth VR/AR Medical Platform to help drive mass adoption of XR in the enterprise,” added Brian Vogelsang, senior director of product management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.
The VR and AR telehealth platforms are revolutionizing the way doctors and patients interact, providing healthcare physicians with accurate data in real-time to determine how to best treat patients. Just last month XRHealth and Sheba Medical Center, ranked by Newsweek at the 10th best hospital in the world, announced that they partnered to create the first fully VR-based hospital, utilizing XRHealth’s technology throughout each department.
