Healthcare providers across the world are contemplating the thought of embracing solutions that boost clinician productivity and empower health team collaboration. In recent times, mixed reality has been offering new opportunities for healthcare providers to seamlessly collaborate with each other while improving patient care, accelerating learning, and optimising operations.
Today, healthcare providers can leverage HoLoLens 2 and mixed reality to connect with remote experts, explore patient data, and go much beyond just x-rays to consult 3D Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) images at the point of care. Teams are being empowered by the comprehensive ecosystem of mixed reality solutions offered by Microsoft, including but not limited to Microsoft HoloLens 2, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Remote Assist, and Microsoft Dynamics 365 Guides to cut down on time-to-care and cooperate more effectively.
According to the Total Economic Impact of Mixed Reality Using Microsoft HoloLens 2 (“HoloLens 2 TEI study”), healthcare organisations tend to experience the following benefits by adopting mixed reality:
Cut down on training time by 30 percent, at an average savings of $63 per labour hour.
Enhance efficiency to complete ward rounds by as much as 30 percent at an average savings of $41 per hour.
Cut down on average annual PPE costs by 75 percent to save $954 per employee.
It is also estimated by Forrester that HoloLens 2 and mixed reality can bring an ROI of 177 percent and a net present value of $7.6 million over three years with a payback of 13 months.
One of the biggest advantages of Dynamics 365 mixed reality on HoloLens 2 is that it helps train medical staff more efficiently and proactively with holographic step-by-step guidance. Medical institutions can leverage Dynamics 365 Guides on HoloLens 2 to offer continuous learning and widespread knowledge sharing while they eliminate the requirement of subject matter experts to be physically present. They can simply use a computer and the HoloLens app to author instructions and easily place 2D and 3D content in the real-world environment to show users where and how to complete tasks.
Dynamics 365 Guides on HoloLens 2 is also empowering technicians, doctors, and nurses to train and practice using hands-on, simulated learning.
