Innovation to Enhance Clinical Development: Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality, and Personalization

If we are going to continue improving healthcare outcomes, workforce clinical development must incorporate some much needed change. Some of the guiding principles for training that healthcare organizations have long taken for granted need to be reexamined. We envision a future where technology facilitates targeted development and helps clinicians to reach their highest potential. 

Artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR), and personalization have promise for creating a new environment and greater success for healthcare workforce development. We can use AI for better assessment of decision-making and competency and help clinicians experience healthcare situations more realistically using VR. Once these tools pinpoint clinicians’ gaps in understanding as well as their opportunities for training and growth, development plans tailored and targeted to individual needs will ensure that every clinician plays an important part in providing the highest quality care.
