Companies like Pristine (AR “see what I see” applications), Ubimax (AR software and services), and Vuzix (AR hardware), are already laying the foundation for the anticipated medical AR ramp-up. And while telemedicine already uses teleconferencing to provide remote connections between medical professionals and their patients, in the coming years, it could greatly accelerate the uptake of medical augmented reality, particularly if smart glasses use cases expand.
“Medicine, like any industry, will leverage new technologies to improve efficiencies and performance; and the move from a per-service structure for reimbursements to performance or quality of care will encourage this outreach for new technology,” concludes Inouye. “While the uptake of augmented reality might lag behind other industries, in part due to an often more rigorous vetting process, growth is certainly coming.”
