CBDI Virtual Reality Tour

The Live Well team was tasked with investigating innovative and immersive ways to introduce the new Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Liberty Campus. Their goal was to present the space to patients and families in a way that was fun to younger audiences but still engaged people of all ages.

The Challenge

When patients and families first arrive at Liberty Campus they are unfamiliar with the new environment and the new procedures of the hospital. This causes uncertainty for patients and their families and can be a source of anxiety.

The Approach

The LWC team looked at current virtual reality technology and its effectiveness in the current market. The team benchmarked scholarly articles and research relating to the use of virtual reality in healthcare systems. The team created concepts for a virtual tour of the campus and how it would affect the patient’s journey.

The Results

The team developed several concepts for a virtual reality tour of the Liberty Campus. They conceptualized a three-dimensional environment of the space that is controlled by a smart phone and a Google Cardboard or other VR headset. They also developed the concept for a virtual environment comprised of 360 degree images. The user navigated this environment along-side a character of their choosing. The team chose the latter concept, which was then refined for later work.
