About this episode of Intel Cutting edge health and life scienceshost Gabrielle Bejarano will chat with Providence Health System VP and Chief People Officer Darci Hall and Intel Health Account Executive Jeffrey Berghammer about opportunities for augmented reality and immersive technologies to support digital transformation in healthcare.
When the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic closed the doors of some healthcare clinics, Providence Healthcare leaders knew they needed to change the way they served patients and providers . Providence Health System has begun creating immersive 3D videos of him to help patients learn physical therapy exercises using their smartphones at home, creating in-house training videos to help current employees It allowed me to stay involved.
Mr Hall said: So that’s what we’re looking at right now, especially around the workforce crisis and being able to deliver consistent patient care across the organization. “
A video produced by Providence helps patients and medical professionals capture the action in 360 degrees with so-called “volume capture” using 20 Intel®️ RealSense™️ depth-sensing cameras. The footage is then transformed into his 3D virtual environment or augmented reality. This unique technology solution sets a new golden standard for home and aftercare that can be shared among patients in the healthcare system’s 51 hospitals.
Instead of sitting on a waiting list, patients were able to watch an immersive video that explained the types of activities patients had to do after surgery was over. I think one of the specific areas of interest was the translation and localization that was going to be done to help underserved communities, communities where English is not their first language.” Berghammer says.
Using funding from the Intel Pandemic Response Technology Initiative, Providence will build its first film studio in 2021, with an additional investment from Intel to work with the Gronstedt Group, a leader in the development of augmented and virtual reality. I received the funds. They want to create Providence’s first smartphone app.
“This is one way we are not only driving innovative approaches to future learning internally, but ultimately delivering them to our community and patients,” explains Hall. By automating patient learning with an immersive experience, Providence hopes to reduce costs, improve the caregiver experience, and improve patient health.
