Let’s shed some light on the basics of hospitals in the metaverse…

What is Metaverse hospital/Clinic?

Hospitals are now entering the virtual world. Metaverse hospitals are the platforms where patients can easily interact with doctors using AR/VR technology. These aim at providing therapy and various other forms of treatment for problems like paralysis, disabilities, etc. In the metaverse hospital, patients can visit doctors in 3D avatars. Physicians can get instant access to patients' real-time health records and data. This means more patients would be treated easily and quickly. They do not have to wait longer to get treatment for any illness.

Meta health ecosystem

From physical interaction between a doctor and patient to digital interaction through messages, voice, or video calls, the healthcare industry has changed the way of interaction during the pandemic. Now, the healthcare system is evolving and adapting blockchain-based metaverse technology to enhance doctor-patient interaction and provide various health services faster.

A giant leap has been experienced in the Meta health ecosystem with the advent of metaverse hospitals. This ecosystem comprises 3D avatars, personalized care, diagnosis and treatment of any health issue, digital twins, and a simplified payment system.

Development of Metaverse hospitals

The hospital or clinic in Metaverse is quite an exciting concept. Talk to our experts if you want to develop such a platform for society's sake and generate handsome revenue. The development process of the metaverse hospitals involves some steps that must be followed. 

Step 1: Requirement gathering

The initial phase of development is requirement gathering. Here, our team gets in touch with the enthusiasts to analyze their needs. The complete market research includes knowing the competitors, target audience, types of features and functionalities, etc. This assists the team in getting the required information about the project.

Step 2: Planning

After gathering all the information from varied resources, we begin with adequate project planning. Considering the project's needs, deadline, milestones, etc., a roadmap is built to begin the design and development operations.

Step 3: Prototype development

By following the roadmap, our team of designers and developers actively participate. Focusing on alluring UX/UI design, the team of designers aims to provide a fantastic user experience. Then, the developer team works on building a prototype with minimum features and gets the approval of the project owner.

Step 4: Backend development

In this development phase, smart contracts are developed to set rules and regulations for the proper functioning of hospitals in the metaverse. It is followed by blockchain integration and integration of various APIs like security, payment, etc.

Step 5: Testing

This is the most crucial phase of the full-cycle development process. The platform undergoes vigorous testing procedures to ensure that it is free from coding bugs, performance issues, and vulnerabilities. If any error is encountered, then the development team eliminates all the errors on a priority basis.

Step 6: Deployment

The next step is to deploy the platform on the recommended network by the client. Here, our team also ensures to resolve post-deployment issues.

Step 7: Maintenance

Not every metaverse development company offers 24/7 support services, but Suffescom Solutions does. We regularly check the latest updates to upgrade the systems as required.

Advantages of the metaverse in the healthcare industry

Talking about the benefits of Metaverse in healthcare, our researchers did thorough research to find up-to-date knowledge related to health services in Metaverse. 

  • Metaverse offers a unique way to access information. It allows data extraction in an easy and secure manner that can be visualized and manipulated.
  • Metaverse in the healthcare sector works as a holoportation where patients in their 3D avatar can be brought into the 3D space while they are still physically present in their room. Further, they are allowed to interact with clinicians to diagnose the problem.
  • Metaverse work by integrating artificial intelligence, augmented reality, and robotics. This combination is efficient at improving patient outcomes, promoting communication between patients and doctors, and increasing the effectiveness of medical equipment.
  • Digital twins in the healthcare industry can collect huge volumes of patient data like MRI, CT, and ultrasound scans & use this information to plan the therapies accordingly. These digital twins ensure smooth clinical operations and hospital administration through human body modeling and digital tracking.
  • The metaverse is powered by blockchain, a decentralized network that utilizes smart contracts in metaverse hospitals to keep a record of digital ownership and protect essential health data. 
  • With the help of Metaverse, patients can visit doctors in 3D clinics or any telemedicine sessions. This ensures improvement in teleconsultation services with users. This advantage of metaverse hospitals is likely to comfort those who do not have a hospital or clinic in their vicinity.

In this way, Metaverse is revolutionizing the way patients and doctors interact with each other in the virtual world.

Key areas in healthcare and how we can help

The team of Suffescom has lifted up the curtains from the 3 major key areas where metaverse is likely to dominate. Have a look below:

  1. Surgical operations

In the current scenario, surgeons use various sophisticated tools and technologies like AR, VR, AI, etc., to get a 3D view of the patient’s body and treat the problem effectively with minimal pain. However, doctors face challenges, like creating realistic objects and surgical equipment within the digital space.
The intervention of metahospitals removes these challenges by providing meta space and realistic doctor-patient interaction. Thus, we build metaverse hospitals driven by AI/ML, virtual reality, and augmented reality for surgery to make the process easy, interactive, and to make the patients learn about surgical operations and associated complications.

  1. Mental health

We build a robust platform that can cater to the needs of various patients. With our metaverse hospitals, patients with various brain issues like phobias, PTSD, anxiety, hallucinations, and delusions can be recovered. Upon mental breakdown, technology changed the way people support patients. The mental wellness apps in the metaverse offer potential benefits to patients with mental illness through various therapies.

  1. Medical education and training

Our metaverse applications in the healthcare industry not only provide treatments but also give medical education and training to study the anatomy of the human body. The augmented and virtual reality in healthcare education creates space for a general medical education environment, learning, training doctors, and enhancing communication between tutor and learner.
