The need for contact-free healthcare has rapidly improved wearable display capabilities
Even before March 2020, hospital administrations across the developed world identified one emerging technology as a medical game changer. Smart Glasses are a cost-effective way to treat a greater volume of patients without compromising efficiency.
While social distancing protocols played a large role in streamlining the technology’s integration, a nationwide skills shortage in the US also provided motivation. This shortage means that 53 out of 100 open positions lie vacant from coast to coast.
AR on Smart Glasses is a natural solution to the skills gap
- Overextended specialists can assist with patient treatments from anywhere.
- Experts-in-training don’t have to be in the same room as instructors to receive high-quality education and procedural walkthroughs.
- Digital projections guide medical personnel through surgeries, increasing the number of patients that can be treated without sacrificing accuracy.
Administrators who’ve successfully equipped their medical staff with AR (augmented reality) displays are trailblazers. Their pioneering spirit benefits the lives of not only their team members, but the patients their hospital serves.
Below, you’ll find some of the challenges they consistently overcome when onboarding Vuzix Smart Glasses.
By harnessing AR (augmented reality), Smart Glasses have the potential to transform global healthcare. How can administrators navigate the challenges of introducing AR programs at hospitals?
The challenges of implementing AR programs at hospitals
The medical staff understands Smart Glasses can increase productivity, collaboration and more. Since championing the deployment of a new hardware device may be daunting to healthcare workers, Vuzix product experts work directly with teams to remove barriers between IT departments that certify and deploy devices and the medical staff that benefit from the devices.
