Friday, August 04, 2023
Ocu Health Care is excited to introduce its groundbreaking platform, aiming to revolutionize healthcare, improve patient outcomes, and reduce costs by providing tailored educational programs to patients before their discharge. In partnership with Kansas Medical Center, OHC is set to offer selected patients access to cutting-edge technology products, including VR headsets, which will deliver educational content in a stress-free manner.
According to statistics provided by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), there were approximately 3.8 million adult hospital readmissions within 30 days, resulting in an average readmission rate of 14% and an average cost of over $15,000 . The recent pandemic has highlighted the potential of technology in enhancing the quality of care in hospitals. OHC recognizes this value and believes that their platform will alleviate the workload of medical staff while enhancing overall patient satisfaction.
To assess the impact of their platform, OHC is currently conducting a pilot study using virtual reality (VR) technology to improve inpatient recovery. The customized VR experience aims to empower patients, providing them with valuable information and engagement in a low-stress immersive environment during their recovery process. The collaboration with Kansas Medical Center is pivotal in the continuous development and improvement of this platform.
