Why is the healthcare industry hesitant to join the metaverse? 👨⚕️
👀 The healthcare industry has been hesitant to jump on the metaverse trend, but is this reluctance warranted?
💊 With the rise of telehealth and remote diagnostics during the Covid-19 pandemic, the metaverse could greatly improve access to care for all patients, regardless of their location.
👨⚕️ Emerging technologies such as AR, VR, and AI are also rapidly accelerating drug discovery and supply chain efficiencies. However, adoption of these technologies remains limited due to concerns over affordability and commercial uptake.
👉 Despite the potential benefits, the healthcare industry still views the metaverse as too risky. Adoption is still in its early stages, and patients' lack of access to the necessary equipment required for remote access to healthcare services remains a major challenge.
🏥 The metaverse could open up opportunities for virtual pharmacies and specialist consultations through VR, vastly improving access to care for people living in remote regions and those with limited mobility. However, building virtual hospitals and ensuring patient data privacy pose real issues that need to be addressed before widespread adoption.
