CBIA faculty member Robin Russell’s article published last year won the Gryna Award from the American Society for Quality (ASQ). From the ASQ website, “Founded in 2010, the Gryna Award is presented for the paper, published in the preceding year, that the committee decides has made the largest single contribution to the extension and knowledge of the philosophy, principles or methods of quality management.”
Rapid developments in the use of augmented and mixed reality devices provide limitless opportunities to improve healthcare. Wider access to diagnostics, delivery, training and surgical outcomes are just some of the possibilities.
Microsoft’s HoloLens can dynamically mix the digital and natural environments. The device enables interaction with holograms as if they were in the same space.
Learn more about how to get involved in a an exciting effort to apply HoloLens capabilities to real world healthcare needs at an informational session on 2/21. On March 6 multidisciplinary teams will each submit a description of their proposed solution and a YouTube video. A small group of teams will be selected and will be loaned a Microsoft HoloLens 3-D to further develop their concept for final selection.
