lack of empathy is a root cause for many problems in the healthcare sector:

almost 70% of medical staff suffers from burnout and compassion fatigue; patient adherence to treatment rate is only 50%.

These phenomena cause over $150B annual loss for the US healthcare system.

Empathy is essential for optimizing patient experience & employee wellbeing.

Research demonstrates that Empathy is a neurobiological competency that can be trained. 

OtheReality delivers a groundbreaking VR-tech-based solution that boosts healthcare staff's empathy and communication skills by allowing them to “walk a mile in their patients' and colleagues' shoes”.

How does it work?

The VR experiences present the trainee with a specific provider-patient interaction, e.g., delivering bad news, preventing violence, or admission and discharge. The engaging multi-perspective VR experiences propel the viewer to feel the other person's emotions (e.g., a woman in gynecology ER). The emotional empathy achieved is later elaborated via an app-based workshop that processes cognitive and motivational empathy and improves communication skills. Using AI and predictive analytics, the platform collects data to personalize the training process and to measure and produce Empathy reports.

Testimonials

DR. ANAT ENGEL, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR AT WOLFSON MEDICAL CENTER

"The VR experience was amazing. It lets medical staff grasp the situation from the patient’s point of view in a very powerful way. I think the tool should be a requirement for medical students. It’s a very important tool and I have no doubt it will be used broadly."
