Virtual reality (VR) has been a buzz word for several years now, but designers are harnessing it's power as a creative design and communication tool. VR is a medium that has the unique ability to accurately simulate the patient's perspective and allow healthcare providers to step into their patient's world before the design process has completed. By visualizing and understanding first-person experiences, healthcare designers are empowered to provide better design solutions, ultimately providing better quality care to vulnerable patient populations. This session will review current VR technology and its role in the design process.
