UAE launched Gulf region First Hospital in the metaverse
The first hospital in Metaverse is to be launched by UAE this year October. Thumbay Group, a
private healthcare organization based in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is
planning to launch the Gulf region's first hospital in Metaverse. The launch of
their virtual hospital is currently on track for October this year according to
The projected Metaverse Institute (hospital) will be a full virtual healthcare institution, highlighted by the founder of Thumbay Group, Dr. Moideen. Patients can interact with physicians and can visit a fully functional virtual hospital using an avatar. According to Thumbay Group's vice president, Akbar Moideen, the hospital will allow tourists to visit the Thumbay healthcare center and see what the Metaverse looks like from the plane. Thumbays is also training its staff on how to work with patients in a virtual environment.
Thumbay Group plans to incorporate artificial intelligence (AI) into the hospital. The hospital uses AI for data input. It provides an efficient system as it does not require identification. Once a patient enters the hospital area, an AI-powered system recognizes their license plate number and face recognition. Since no identification is required, a file is established as soon as the patient enters the reception area. Group will apply this technique to all Thumbay plants too. The system also allows pharmacists to track patients, who came to pick up their prescribed medications. If a patient walks into the pharmacy, the system alerts the pharmacist immediately and informs them of the prescription.
The hospital has been also using AR and VR technologies to help long-term care patients who have been hospitalized for at least six months, and are bedridden or paralyzed to stay connected with their homes. Patients are allowed to wear headsets to view their homes, which could have benefits beyond psychological aid in the patient's recovery. The Group also intends to cater to international visitors to the UAE, who looking here for medical tourism.
With AR and VR technologies, terminally ill patients can experience their surroundings from home. They can do this by using headgear and other tools to effectively relive life situations. With the hospital's technological endeavors, they are able to give patients a more holistic form of care.
Thumbay said a decision on fees had not yet been made, but it would likely be in line with the teleconsultation fee charged by the healthcare provider.
Last January, UAE Ministry of Health and Community Protection (MOHAP) launched the world’s first customer service center with Metaverse technologies in Dubai.
