Current world events mean that fewer people are able to spend time with each other. Namely, education has been put on hold without the ability to provide in-person training and learning. In particular, the health industry has been a victim of this and in-clinic training was not able to be provided to health professionals.
Of course, this jeopardises the healthcare that can be given to patients and it has been necessary to seek other avenues to turn this around. Thankfully, Virti has come to the rescue with its advanced technology and software.
Virti Introduces Virtual Patient Software
In-person training for healthcare workers has been put on hold for further notice. However, this does not mean that education has to stop. Instead, Virti has introduced their new virtual patient software that is powered by advanced artificial intelligence. This is going to be able to provide clinical training to hundreds of healthcare workers in the NHS and all across the country.
Through this software, a patient profile is created with realistic information. This allows medics to learn from role-play scenarios no matter where they are. In particular, Virti has utilised natural language processing or NLP, as well as speech recognition other advanced technology to make the simulation like real life. For instance, it can generate patient responses and monitor how well the medic is doing based on what they are saying to the patient and their body language. This can be done through virtual reality.
Over the years, a lot of progress has been made with technology in the medical field. There are investors looking to help and make similar software to Virti possible. This includes Indian investor Tej Kohli who has already helped many people regain their eyesight as part of his philanthropic vision.
Advanced Software that is Here to Stay
Education and training just became a lot easier with Virti and their virtual patient. The software can be enjoyed through a healthcare worker’s laptop or virtual reality headset. In particular, skills that can be improved include clinical reasoning and communication. Professionals can improve their response to distressed patients and the best techniques for breaking bad news.
In particular, the introduction of personal protective equipment or PPE has led to a breakdown between patients and medics. With this software, healthcare professionals can learn how to adapt in these situations and ensure that patients are comfortable and have a good experience. In addition, professionals can feel more confident and prepared for different scenarios. It is a safe way for individuals to train from home and it is simple and engaging to use. In particular, professionals have said that they enjoy the gamification aspect of the software and that it makes training more effective.
The Virti software has been announced as one of the best inventions of 2020. There is no doubt that remote training and education is becoming more popular. Virti is already being welcomed by the NHS and it is likely that this software will enjoy continued use in future years.
