The ability to act quickly using accurate information is crucial in healthcare, as is sharing expert knowledge between different departments and organisations.

Extended Reality (XR) can enable this by providing better ways of communicating and working, connecting healthcare workers with the knowledge and support they need to provide the best possible patient care.

Additionally, junior or trainee doctors and nurses can be enabled to work independently more quickly when using XR for hands-on education and assessment.

Westbase XR supports you, our partner, and your healthcare customers through design, build and management – delivering an end-to-end approach and blueprint for a successful deployment.

Extended Reality (XR) in healthcare can support...

Training & Assessment

Empowering junior or trainee doctors and nurses to work more independently, more quickly can accelerate and improve educational processes. Doing so while ensuring the highest standards of patient care can prove tricky though.

XR can enable this by allowing junior or trainee healthcare workers to be monitored and assisted remotely by senior practitioners. Using two-way video communication to see and hear from the junior/trainee’s perspective, remote mentors can provide guidance when it is needed. The feed can also be utilised to observe and assess how well the junior/trainee is performing. By providing this support remotely, one senior practitioner can support more juniors or trainees at one time as well.

Knowledge Sharing & Consultation

Healthcare methods and medicine evolve at rapid rates, making knowledge sharing a real challenge for practitioners. Peer-to-peer communication is especially important, allowing specialists to support doctors and healthcare teams who may be geographically dispersed with the latest information in patient care.

Using Extended Reality, this communication can be elevated, allowing healthcare professionals to consult on a patient more easily. Using two-way video, specialists can observe and exchange with patients without needing to be physically present, or alternatively can support a colleague through a procedure they’re unfamiliar with. This is ideal for delivering telemedicine applications across different locations, or in the field, so patient treatment can be accelerated. Additionally, training videos and other documentation can also be quickly captured and disseminated via XR so that new procedures or techniques become more accessible.
