For decades, scientists have been quietly discovering the surprising health benefits of virtual reality (VR) for ailments ranging from burn injuries, to stroke, to PTSD, to schizophrenia. Over ten thousand studies reveal that VR has an uncanny ability to calm pain, steady nerves, and boost mental health. VR is helping to deliver babies, enabling soldiers to cope with the mental scars of war, and reminding doctors that patients are not broken machines, but are people whose subjective lives matter. VR is not just for gamers anymore; it is a new type of mind-body medicine. Cedars-Sinai Virtual Medicine is a multidisciplinary program dedicated to harnessing the power of MXR technologies, including virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR), to develop and test innovative virtual therapeutics. Developed by the Cedars-Sinai Virtual Medicine program with generous support from the Marc and Sheri Rapaport Fund for Digital Health Sciences and Precision Health, the annual Virtual Medicine (vMed) Conference is a two-day symposium that convenes the brightest minds in Medical Extended Reality (MXR). Participants learn from case studies, didactic lectures, and patient vignettes to achieve the following educational objectives: 1. Learn best practices and pragmatic tips for implementing MXR into clinical practice. 2. Review evidence supporting the efficacy of MXR applications for patient care. 3. Discuss the cost-effectiveness, payer perspectives, and regulatory landscape of MXR. 4. Hear from patients who have received MXR therapeutics. 5. Study uses of MXR for clinical simulation and provider training.
