WEBINAR: The Virtual Hospital: The Role VR Plays in Design

It is no secret that technology advancements in health care have paved the way for significant medical discoveries, decreased recovery times and improved patient care.

This same technology is applied during the critical design stages of new medical facilities. Architects have recognized the importance of fully understanding evolved health care trends and applying them to new medical spaces.

More than a decade ago, the introduction of computerized 3-D modeling allowed health care leaders to more easily envision their new space. More recently, the architecture industry has begun utilizing virtual reality (VR) to communicate design concepts, whether it be renovated patient rooms, a full medical campus or an extension of an existing hospital or clinic.

Learning Objectives:
- Outline how VR utilization throughout the entire design process will save time and maintain budget costs.
- Gain an understanding of the benefits for hospitals to use VR technology.
- Discuss various ways implementing VR can be used to promote fundraising for new projects.
