  • Health care company Thumbay Group will launch the United Arab Emirates’ first hospital in the metaverse in the coming months.
  • Regarding the fee, Dr. Thumbay said a decision has not yet been made, but it will likely be in line with the teleconsultation fees charged by the health care operator.
  • The group is integrating artificial intelligence into the hospital’s system whereby cameras will detect the patient’s car license plate number and then their face when they enter the hospital.

Health care company Thumbay Group will launch the first hospital in the United Arab Emirates in the metaverse in the coming months, a senior official said Wednesday.

“We are already working on it and we hope that it will be released before October of this year. This will be a complete virtual hospital where people will come with an avatar and consult with the doctor. To cater to medical tourism, we will allow patients to see what the hospital looks like in the metaverse if they travel and come to Thumbay Health Care Center,” said Dr. Thumbay Moideen, Founder and Chairman of Thumbay Group.

Several sectors are experiencing mass adoption of the metaverse

the company of medical care of the UAE has hired a company to train all of its doctors on how to treat patients in the metaverse.

Regarding the fee, Dr. Thumbay said a decision has not yet been made, but it will likely be online with teleconsultation rates charged by the health care operator.

It is also integrating artificial intelligence into the hospital system.

Dr. Thumbay was speaking on the sidelines of the “Insurance Meeting 2022” hosted by the Thumbay Group on Wednesday.

Akbar Moideen Thumbay, vice president of the Thumbay Group, said that the group is integrating artificial intelligence into the hospital system whereby cameras will detect the patient’s car license plate number and then their face when they enter the hospital.

“When a patient arrives at the reception, his file is already open. The process of presenting the identity card or insurance will be eliminated. This will be implemented throughout Thumbay Teaching Hospital. If a patient goes to the pharmacy, the cameras will recognize her face and the system will tell the pharmacist that the patient has come to pick up their medication,” she added.

AR and VR technology for long-term care patients

The Thumbay Group is introducing AR & VR technology for long-term care patients who are bedridden and paralyzed in hospitals for six months or more.

“The hospital is giving them AR and VR headsets so they can see their homes. For example, a person from Sri Lanka has been with us for a long period of time that he was paralyzed after a car accident and all the sensory movements of him are gone, but only his brain works.”

“You can virtually experience and visit your room in Sri Lanka through AR and VAR technology. This motivates long-term care patients and gives them hope that they will be able to return to their country,” Thumbay said.

He said that many patients undergo this treatment through AR and VR.
