Future of Healthcare Digitization and Digitalization in Medicine and Healthcare for Diagnostics


AR (Augmented Reality) is the future of computing, truly. It transcends traditional computing with 2D monitors, mice, and keyboards – and takes us into spatial computing, with 3D holograms and more natural interactions. It’s a whole new way of interacting with digital content in the context of the real world.

Although there are several forms of AR such as mobile and smart glasses, the most advanced and powerful is immersive AR, which is defined as photorealistic, high-resolution, life-size holograms wrapped in a natural interaction paradigm using direct hand manipulation and voice commands. Immersive AR has immense potential to change how we communicate, collaborate, and create… enhancing our human interaction in the process.

Healthcare is one of the primary verticals in AR with the most to gain. In healthcare education, medical schools are starting to train a new generation of healthcare professionals using interactive 3D anatomical models – reducing the need for cadavers and significantly improving training and comprehension.

With immersive 3D medical imaging, AR can assist with everything from diagnosis, to patient communication, to collaborative pre-operative planning, to the surgery itself, where 3D MRI/CT scan is overlaid onto the patient. The benefits of 3D medical imaging go well beyond providing high financial value – they represent the future of caregiving.

  1. Totally amazing! I never knew they would be using holograms in the medical field! I’ve read about the med-beds but not holograms. I think the holograms would definitely help in diagnosis of disease. Thank you so much for posting, Dr. Martha!
