The Holomedicine Association is a global network of individual experts from medicine, science, technology, and policy. We work to build new methods for delivering mixed reality technologies in medicine and surgery, ensuring they have maximum clinical impact.
The Holomedicine Association exists to transform healthcare, and bring the benefits of ground-breaking new technology to all patients.
Illustrate the breadth of innovation in the field of digital health and raise awareness across clinical communities about the transformative potential of Holomedicine.
Establish an appropriate framework for Holomedicine applications and their integration into the field of digital health.
Demonstrate the life-changing impact of holomedicine-based applications to patients.
Set new standards in medical quality, patient safety and data protection, and ensure medical staff are equipped with the information and training they need to deliver holomedicine-based applications.
What is HOLOmedicine?
The Holomedicine Association is not only the first of its kind, but it pioneers a new term – Holomedicine – to describe applications which blend augmented, mixed and virtual reality to allow for the practice and delivery of medicine through sensory camera technology. "Holo" is derived from hologram, whereby medical information such as MRI and CT scans, as well as ultrasound, microscope and endoscope screens, are displayed as holograms. This is viewed through mixed reality glasses while, at the same time, the real-world environment remains completely visible.
Holomedicine applications can create a 3-dimensional hologram image of a patient’s anatomy, allowing the surgeon or medical professional to carry out multiple practices including surgical planning and preparation, telesurgery, and training to student physicians.
