2019 Winner Profile

Children's Hospital Los Angeles

Project Description:
The hospital implemented virtual reality (VR) to educate physicians about complicated urology issues. In one case, visiting doctors from China stood next to a Children's surgeon as he operated on a baby born with her bladder outside her body. The system allows for immersive education in sterile operating environments, while avoiding costly overhead and preventing overcrowding. Doctors can ask questions via two-way communication; video over IP and fiber optic video transport the video to remote sites without needing new infrastructure; and a separate video network ensures hospital data isn't compromised.
