What's Next in Virtual Care

October 13, 2015

Last Friday, I attended USC’s annual Body Computing Conference and took part in a panel discussion with other founding members of USC’s newly launched Virtual Care Clinic. The clinic is a first-of-its-kind virtual hospital with health data available through new and innovative technologies. We’re exploring how wearable devices can support the next generation of healthcare.

Through VSP’s innovation lab, The Shop, we’ve partnered with the university’s Center for Body Computing (CBC)—a unique think tank dedicated to creating digital healthcare solutions. We’ll be working with the CBC on the next generation of our wearable prototype, Project Genesis, as well as helping pioneer this new frontier of virtual care solutions.

While I was there, I checked out a new technology that would allow doctors and nurses to interact with patients through holograms. Amazing things are happening in healthcare technology. What do you think about hologram-based house calls?
