The use of virtual and augmented reality (XR) in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries has been a major area of growth over the last 12 months. However, there are still many regulatory challenges to overcome, and plenty of questions still to be answered.

Concerns around privacy and safety are very much at the top of regulators’ minds, with issues around liability and ownership of data sources of great contention. As the technologies becomes more accessible and widespread, a comprehensive regulatory framework is required to ensure patients’ interests are maintained, whilst allowing the use of the technologies to thrive.

With over 90% of healthcare currently experimenting with XR, AI and blockchain, the potential of advanced technologies to transform patient care is clear to see; from training surgeons, to enhancing physiotherapy and pain management, to the treatment of phobias. In conjunction with this, pharmaceutical companies are seeing huge benefits in using the technologies for improved drug visualization, worker training and customer engagement too.

To truly benefit from the potential of XR however, healthcare providers, research institutions, companies, tech providers and regulators must all assess where the market is and isn’t ready for growth, how to overcome concerns around privacy and safety and how to truly measure the impact VR & AR are having across the sector.

On July 17 we brought experts together from Penn Medicine, Biogen, Stanford University and VR Voice to explore VR & AR for Healthcare & Pharma – Overcome Challenges, Find Opportunities and Drive ROI.
