Dynamics 365 Guides is a next-generation solution empowering healthcare providers, patients and health science to improve patient experience while reducing risks and costs. Healthcare providers can accelerate diagnoses, reduce time-to-care and improve outcomes. Doctors can provide data-rich, interactive remote consultation services to limit face-to-face visits. Surgeons, nurses and medical staff can collaborate in real-time with enhanced video and audio facilities to improve care and quality of patient treatment.

Now, let’s check out some of the prime use cases of Dynamics 365 Guides with HoloLens 2 in the healthcare sector.

Key applications of Dynamics 365 Guides with HoloLens 2 for healthcare

Enhance patient care

Redefine patient care by empowering care teams to coordinate and manage procedures effortlessly across healthcare organizations. The valuable data from Dynamics 365 into Power BI reports gives better clinical and operational insights to identify risk and enhance patient health outcomes.

Dynamics 365 Guides equips the frontline healthcare workers to access key healthcare metrics like length of stay, patient readmission rates, patient satisfaction, staff-patient ratio and costs. These insights contextualize physician-patient conversations and drive more informed patient decision-making while improving overall healthcare management.

Remote nursing education

“According to World Health Organization (WHO), to achieve the goal of universal health coverage by 2030, the world needs nine million more nurses and midwives.”

Upskilling nurses from time to time is a recurring operating cost for healthcare institutions. Hence, with Dynamics 365 Guides on HoloLens 2, nurses can enhance their skills without disturbing their duty and wearing a PPE kit. D365 Guides benefits for healthcare also include providing hands-on learning experiences from remote areas and monitoring nurses’ progress in real-time. The integrated Power BI dashboards can fetch real-time performance data to maximize nurses’ capabilities with operational improvements.

Real-life scenario

The School of Nursing at the University of Michigan (the University) adopted Dynamics 365 Guides for HoloLens 2 to support hybrid learning because of its capability to provide hands-on skills to nursing students remotely.

Assist surgeons in live surgery

The challenges faced by surgeons in any healthcare organization consist of immediate physical contact with remote patients, collaboration and communication as well as guidance during criticality from an expert. Using MS Dynamics 365 Guides, surgeons can view written, audio or video form in their environment to provide better patient care.

Also, Dynamics Guides on HoloLens 2 app helps in medical simulation training to provide practical operating room skills to doctors and nurses. Thus, the frontline workers can perform their duties with greater safety and critical medical assistance in underserved regions globally.

Real-life scenario

Remote Surgery with HoloLens 2 technology has been leveraged to diagnose over 3000 patients and successfully treat more than 400 at the Kyabirwa Surgical Centre based in Uganda.

Train medical students

Traditionally, students practice medical procedures on manikins that resemble the human body and provide the haptic feedback of performing a particular action. They often struggle with complex medical procedures with many steps and things to take care of concurrently.

Dynamics 365 Guides on HoloLens 2 app allows students to perform a step-by-step training procedure with their heads-up and hands-free on manikins and machines. Each step instructs them what to do next with some text, videos or pictures of 3D objects placed in their environment. Healthcare process training with HoloLens 2 uses holographic stepwise instructions and process insights to enhance learning, regulate practices and reduce errors.

Remote patient consultation

HoloLens 2 headset integrated with Dynamics 365 Guides app can facilitate the Teams call to collaborate in real-time with a remote expert using Microsoft Teams desktop. Doctors can directly communicate with remote patients and share their HoloLens video feed like holographic guide content. All these conversations in remote consultation can be as effective as face-to-face visits in real-time.

Empower healthcare team collaboration

Every healthcare organization has a multidisciplinary care team – clinical staff, specialized doctors and medical administrators who work at multiple locations adding cost, time and complexity to patient care.

It is crucial to enable healthcare teams to collaborate more effectively and reduce time-to-care by viewing 3D images of MRI and CT scans in real-time. With Dynamics 365 Guides solutions, the care team can use spatial information to accelerate diagnoses, improve precision and reduce the need for additional support.

Teach to operate medical devices

Misdiagnosis is still a major challenge in healthcare, so they need a well-trained and well-equipped medical staff to deliver accurate and faster patient care. Thus, it is important to train staff with the knowledge to operate medical devices and machines. D365 Guides empowers staff with hand-on training as well as step-by-step instructions to use diagnostic tools/devices properly for high-quality evidence-based diagnoses.

Breaking new grounds in the healthcare landscape

The healthcare industry faces tremendous challenges like connecting with patients when remote, on-the-job training for healthcare professionals, sensing data to provide personalized treatment and more. D365 Guides on HoloLens 2 in the healthcare domain can offer personalization in care, real-time remote consultation, data sharing, guided training and diversifying patient care across multiple communication channels. If you are looking to adopt a Dynamics 365 Guides solution on HoloLens 2, our team of experts can help.
