France is at the center of excellence in health. Innovation is the heart of business strategies in this sector in ensuring increased comfort and overall improvement of the lives of patients. Faced with increasingly connected patients and people with illnesses, the medical industry is continuously developing new technologies for better care. Being the precursor to telemedicine, eHealth is now developing rapidly.
Improving and making care safer is a major issue in the medical field. Seeking efficiency for all actors involved in the healthcare process has become imperative. The objective is to provide comprehensive and continuous support for patients while managing budgetary constraints.
The introduction of serious games in the medical field is one solution in meeting these challenges and facilitating support. The immersive nature of 3D makes it possible to put patients and medical professionals in real-life situations and offers many benefits:
– Prevention and management of medical risk
– Training medical staff
– Patient rehabilitation
– Helping children with diseases
– Care for psychological disorders
“PowerPoint Training” has reached its limits when it comes to bringing together healthcare professionals around a specific therapeutic issue or raising awareness of the support needs for a certain type of patient. If a picture is worth a thousand words, an immersive 3D world is worth exponentially more. Thrusting users into a near real life situation allows them to:
– Practice in near real and scientifically valid conditions
– Facilitate a dynamic and motivational session
– Ensure the acquisition of skills and best practices
– Confirm the proper implementation of knowledge and clinical expertise
The ‘SCA Life Serious Game’ developed by Serious Factory, for example, allows doctors to practice the management of acute coronary syndrome in near real conditions. The software makes the scenario “live” through various activities such as the ability to conduct a virtual interview with the patient or immediate visualization of physiological changes and responses to given treatments.
