As virtual and augmented reality becomes more affordable and quality improves, medical professionals, administrators, regulators, insurance companies, and investors are looking hard at the technology. Showing promise in many areas, including psychotherapy, pain reduction, surgical planning, and palliative care, VR and AR both offer new options for medical professionals.

To address the need for strategic information on the benefits and challenges of virtual and augmented reality in medical practice, Greenlight Insights has added the Healthcare Summit to xRS Week 2019.
