WHAT WILL METAVERSE OFFER PHYSICIANS AND PATIENTS IN THE FUTURE?

I remember visiting the virtual world of Second Life in 2006 as an interesting experience at best. While Second Life was founded based on an open and rule-free community, it now appears to have moved on as a central platform with ‘immersive virtual reality’ aspects. Without all the crucial building blocks, Second Life – despite the idealistic vision of its founders at the time – did not meet the conditions for developing into a true metaverse. But now, we can design new healthcare in the metaverse. So let’s step into the future.


It’s June 2030. In the morning, I activate the Data-Driven Doctor Universal Space Experience. I do a short assessment – including a check-up of my vitals – and, in the blink of an eye, I am presented with several possibilities in my VR environment. With my digital identity recommended to me today, I move around from space to space. The version of “character” I should have is calculated in real-time following my performance over time in various skills, assessments of my fitness performance, focus, as well as my preferences regarding individual goals.
