We are at a pivotal time in medicine. Advancements in Precision Medicine, Genomics, and Synthetic Biology are accelerating our understanding of diseases like cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s. At the same time, real clinical data and patient outcomes continue to demonstrate that immersive technologies like virtual reality, augmented reality, and even mixed reality are no longer an experimental use case. Immersive technologies are proving to be an integral part of the patient experience for years to come.

Whether you work as a creator in XR, ARVR in the immersive industry, are an investor, provide direct patient care, are a CMO, a hospital administrator, clinical researcher, or patient advocate, you will not want to miss The Next Evolution’s upcoming event exploring Patient Driven Health.

Join us as we explore the next evolution in healthcare and the need to reimagine the patient experience. We’ll delve into what patient-driven health means, who is leading the way in taking immersive applications to the bedside, the surgical theater, the research lab, and the patient home.

Physical & Virtual Venues: 

1871 | 222 W Merchandise Mart Plz | Suite 1212

For our Physical Venue, 1871 can be found in Suite 1212 on the 12th floor of theMART, which is located on the North side of the river between Wells and Orleans. For easy access, enter through the Orleans entrance on the west side of theMART and take those elevators to the 12th floor. 

Virbela | Virtual Environment | virbela.com/download

For our Virtual Venue, we will be using Virbela‘s Open Campus to host the program. We suggest that you download, set-up, get familiar with the Virbela program and environment prior to the program, as we will be unable to provide support during the event.

The virtual environment resembles a physical space, so you will be able to talk with other attendees during open networking both before and after the presentations. The sound is spatialized, so if at any point it feels too loud, feel free to move your conversation to another part of the room where there are less people.
