Under Aster DM Healthcare, Medcare Hospitals & Medical Centres has emerged as the UAE's first medical facility to be present in the metaverse, winning the historic race to the future by planning a full-scale rollout of their hospitals on Web 3.0.
This is in line with Dubai's vision to become the world's metaverse hub with the government's strategy announced this July. Medcare is one of the largest healthcare provider chains in Dubai and Sharjah.
To achieve this objective, Medcare partnered with BIOMETAVERSE and announced its virtual existence by going live on October 11, 2022.
Hosted on a public cloud within the geographical limits of the UAE, the Metaverse healthcare facility aims to provide a glimpse of the real-life experience at Medcare Women & Children Hospital.
Dr. Shanila Laiju, Chief Executive Hospital (CEO), Medcare Hospitals and Medical Centers, said, "With this, we will deliver actual healthcare services by incorporating the delivery of real-time consultations through our team of over 400 medical experts. We expect in the long-run, traditional "telemedicine" services to be replaced by a need for Metaverse interactions, allowing our patients to receive a more tangible and collaborative service."
