Over the past week, AVATR UX design leads - John Walters and Christopher da Costa - have been engaged directly with clinicians from the Albert Einstein Hospital in São Paulo to further develop AVATR technology. The aim of these workshops is to position AVATR as a resource to support improvements in clinical outcomes and to reduce healthcare costs, as well as to improve patient experience while outside of hospital.
Our engagement with Einstein Hospital is part of Project CityZen, a smart cities Newton Fund initiative that is led by Inavya, in partnership with Future Cities Catapult and Space Syntax in the UK. Our partners in Brazil are CPqD and Industria-I.
Over the next year, new AI-enabled features will be added to AVATR to enhance user experience for doctors and patients. These features will include patient-led care plans, matchmaking the patient to local services, and voice-controlled navigation. Commenting on this Newton Fund initiative, Dr Michael Wilkinson (CEO of Inavya) said “We are excited to be working with Einstein clinicians on the further development of AVATR, and we look forward to supporting ongoing improvement in healthcare throughout our global network, which includes linked initiatives in Singapore and the EU.”
