Friday, July 28, 2017   (0 Comments)

The American Society of Consultant Pharmacists’ Annual Meeting and Exhibition returns this year to Kissimmee, Florida from November 2 - 5. Todd Marks, CEO of Mindgrub, is keynoting the conference (AM17) with an engaging talk on How Virtual Visits and Virtual Reality Are Changing Healthcare.

Virtual reality (VR) has begun to slip into mainstream entertainment, revolutionizing the way people can experience the virtual world.

But the head-mounted display devices can be used for much more than gaming. VR is being integrated into healthcare in various ways with the help of pioneers like Todd Marks. Mindgrub helped Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland improve their employees’ information retention through the use of virtual reality training games. This technology is still being further developed and improved, but its potential is limitless.

Marks’ interactive keynote presentation at AM17 will be insightful, discussing how to leverage completely new technologies, like VR, in health care and telemedicine. Learn how this new tech will improve efficiencies and accessibility for consultant pharmacists, and discuss the idea behind the virtual visit and how it has evolved to present day.

There is still time to register to exhibit at the largest gathering of pharmacists in a post-acute care environment with access to over 1000 pharmacists!

Register now to join Marks and other healthcare thought leaders in Kissimmee, Florida this November 2-5 to be among the first to experience this new age tech.
