Silver Chain EMMR experience - Holographic Doctor
Publication/Creation DateSeptember 27 2017
DescriptionEMMR is SIlver Chain's new Enhanced Medical Mixed Reality interface, using Microsoft HoloLens. It will use ‘mixed reality’ technology to combine real life, projected holograms and video conferencing, allowing our nurses, clinicians and clients better access to information and services.
Silver Chain is committed to keeping clients at home as they age. CEO Dr. Christopher McGowan and National Medical Director Dr. Daryl Kroschel discuss ways in which their technology has allowed them to proactively monitor patients in their community and "put their experience at the forefront".
For clients currently receiving hospital in the home and health services, EMMR will enable real-time interaction with medical professionals in their homes. This includes doctors who can be projected as holograms via the headset.
The mixed reality headset will allow nurses to share information hands-free, and in the future will be able to record patient data, in real time via a virtual dashboard. Using EMMR, a Silver Chain Group nurse visiting a client at home will have access to all client medical data through the virtual display, with the ability for a doctor to effectively see through the eyes of the nurse as the examination takes place.
