A Post-Pandemic Overview of the Immersive Healthcare Landscape and Market with Bob Fine, IVRHA
Robert Fine, Executive Director of the IVRHA, will present a “state of immersive healthcare market” that will include a review of the last two years and expectations for the next 18-24 months. Fine is in a unique position to give this presentation and will attend AWE on the heels of the IVHRA (International Virtual Reality Healthcare Association) conference happening in Finland on October 19-20.
For healthcare professionals, it’s a perfect pairing to attend the symposium and then AWE for a broader perspective of what’s going on with XR around the world.

XR in Medical Education: Evidence, Application, and the Road Ahead with Ruby Woodward of University of Cambridge and GigXR
Drawing from her research at Cambridge University and hands-on experience with GigXR, Dr. Ruby Woodward will introduce attendees to HoloScenarios, an application that creates hyperrealistic holographic simulations emulating high-risk acute medical scenarios. Woodward believes in the importance of aligning technological innovations with established medical principles and learning theories.
Similar to that talk, there are others on the agenda related to healthcare and medicine that aren’t necessarily on the Healthcare & Wellness track. If you’re able to attend, we recommend that you browse the agenda page and search for keywords that might be of interest as you create an agenda plan that best suits your needs.
One of the benefits of an in-person event is the ability to talk with representatives from the companies and usually you also have the opportunity to test the tech or try the various apps they’re building.
