Visual remote guidance is available. Training doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals on medical equipment is typically costly and time-consuming. This is true for both medical providers and the equipment supplier. This is particularly true when medical equipment training specialists need to travel to regions of the world that are challenging to access, as many have been during the COVID-19 pandemic. Fortunately, visual remote guidance technology makes it possible to effectively train medical personnel no matter where they are located.
Establishing a time for initial training and then followup training can be a barrier to achieving proficiency with new medical devices and equipment. Medical equipment is complex and highly sensitive, requiring many hours of in-person training to ensure it is being used properly. Another layer of complication (and expense) is added if training of medical equipment takes place in locations that are difficult for the supplier to reach.
Visual remote guidance technology provides a merged reality video stream. This allows medical equipment suppliers and onsite medical staff to work together from anywhere in the world. Both sides can engage with the screen for a 3D view and very specific instruction on how to use and care for medical devices and equipment. This enables faster, more efficient training.
Whether in an adjacent hospital room or in another country, both can engage in virtual side-by-side training.
Remote visual assistance technology allows users to view a merged reality. This allows both sides to engage with the view on the screen. This means you can complete on the job training with medical professionals in real time, and with ‘hands-on’ guidance as if in a peer-to-peer setting.
Even though the hospital is located across the world from the medical equipment manufacturer, you can train staff in real time and can start using the equipment to serve patients.
A visual support app makes training easier and faster for both trainer and trainee. Merged reality allows medical equipment experts to effectively be onsite during procedures. They get a real time, detailed view of exactly what is happening. They can also guide trainees on how to operate tools and equipment.
Help Lightning’s remote collaboration tools merges two video streams, that of the medical person onsite and the equipment specialist. Both sides of the screen can engage in a merged virtual reality, making collaboration feel as if it’s in person.
Visual remote guidance supports several Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) in medical settings.
