Johnson & Johnson Utilizes the Metaverse to Train Health Professionals
Johnson & Johnson has just opened Mexico's first Innovation Room, a space that features the latest technology in medical devices and simulators to provide surgical procedure training to doctors, surgeons, and other health professionals.
The initiative, which is part of Johnson & Johnson's global vision and commitment to raise the standard of medical care and touch more lives, will allow health professionals to develop and improve surgical procedures and interventions in a controlled environment, making them less invasive, safer, and more predictable.
“For Johnson & Johnson MedTech, residents, doctors and students from the health industry are a fundamental part of empowering the health system, therefore, we seek to strengthen their training with initiatives such as the Innovation Room,” said Andrés Gravenhorst, CEO of Johnson. & Johnson MedTech Mexico.
This space will be a new tool for continuing education, utilizing cutting-edge technology such as augmented reality and simulation in specialties such as colon cancer, orthopedics, electrophysiology, and plastic surgery, venturing into challenging, controlled, and conducive scenarios for better learning.
The Innovation Room will be open in April 2022, within the offices of Johnson & Johnson MedTech Mexico, and interested health professionals can access it by reserving their spot through an application provided by a representative of the Johnson & Johnson Institute at least two days in advance, and with a training configuration in small groups with specific learning practices.
