A Pioneering VR-Tech Solution 

to Boost Empathy in Healthcare

ABOUT US

Lack of Empathy is a root cause of many healthcare challenges, such as staff burnout and low patient adherence.

These cost the US healthcare system an estimated $100B annually. Despite evidence that empathy is improvable and crucial for healthcare quality, current empathy-boosting solutions lack impact measurability, personalization & scalability.

Empathy is essential for optimizing patient experience & employee wellbeing.

OtheReality has developed a personalized empathy gym for medical centers. Leveraging AI & VR, staff are invited to walk a mile in the shoes of their patients and colleagues through individual experiential workouts designed using our research-backed methodology.

How does it work?

The VR experiences present the trainee with a specific provider-patient interaction (e.g., delivering bad news). The engaging multi-perspective VR experiences propel the viewer to feel the other person's emotions. The emotional empathy achieved is later elaborated via an app-based workshop that processes cognitive and motivational empathy and improves communication skills. The "workout" data, augmented by sensor-based indicators, is aggregated and analyzed on the platform, creating deep-learning-based dashboards and measuring the organization’s Algorithmic Empathy Index (patent pending AEI™­­) for the medical centers to better meet their KPIs and demonstrate ROI.

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."
