There will also be a seminar theatre and a platform for exhibitors to showcase the latest healthcare technology.

“The healthcare industry has witnessed incredible changes in recent years, with technology and innovation the driving force behind how the industry is elevating patient care. These latest advancements are expected to increase further by utilizing the Metaverse and looking at how we interact with technology to utilize artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR), and virtual reality (VR) to improve patient outcomes,”

said Ross Williams, exhibition director for Informa Markets.

The Future of Health Summit is an exclusive and immersive event for senior government officials and healthcare CEOs. The event is “looking to explore the future of health and delve deep into the amazing possibilities of healthcare in the metaverse.” The supporting governmental entities include the UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention, the Government of Dubai, the Dubai Health Authority, the Department of Health, and the Dubai Healthcare City Authority.

This year, the UAE launched the first hospital in the metaverse, which provides medical tourism services. Paralyzed patients can interact with doctors through metaverse avatars.
