This webinar is sponsored by the Academy of Architecture for Health (AAH) and provides 1 HSW/LU credit.


Virtual reality (VR) has been a buzz word for several years now, but designers are harnessing it’s power as a creative design and communication tool. VR is a medium that has the unique ability to accurately simulate the patient's perspective and allow healthcare providers to step into their patient's world before the design process has completed.  By visualizing and understanding first-person experiences, healthcare designers are empowered to provide better design solutions, ultimately providing better quality care to vulnerable patient populations.  This session will review current VR technology and its role in the design process.


After participating in this webinar attendees will:

1.  Identify the current state of VR/AR technology.
2.  Understand the benefits and effectiveness of VR in comparison to other methods of communication and its direct effort on the design on healthcare facilities.
3.  Understand the role of VR in the design process and see examples how virtual reality technology can be used to improve patient-centered care.
4.  Gain insights into the future of VR/AR in the industry and how it virtual reality can influence the design process for the healthcare built environment.




This live course is a collaboration between the Webinar committee and the NextGen  Committee within the Academy of Architecture for Health.  The web-based 60-minute seminars are tailored to provide budding healthcare design professionals with conceptual and practical primer-level knowledge.
