HoloCare- In a pandemic, HoloCare can deliver a solution that maintains the quality of treatment in hospitals. By enabling critical care clinicians to work safely and remotely using holograms
During a pandemic, hospitals hold a large concentration of people infected with disease. Keeping these facilities open and running are a large determinant on whether the disease can be managed properly.
Continuing treatment at these facilities using personal protective equipment is not always sufficient to contain the spread of infection, neither for patients nor for critical-care personnel. Alternatively, reducing rates of transmission through social distancing is an effective technique for unknown and difficult-to-treat diseases. Building upon these social distancing guidelines, we saw an opportunity to pivot the use of our holographic technology towards giving healthcare personnel the ability to work at a safe distance from patients and other personnel.
