Can Moffitt Cancer Center and Ringling College Combat Cancer Patients' Miseries with VR?

By Enterprise Technology Review | Friday, October 04, 2019

Moffitt Cancer Center and Ringling College have decided to join hands to develop treatment through Virtual Reality for cancer patients.

FREMONT, CA: With the cancer treatment becoming more complex day by day, fear, anxiety, and stress among the patients has also taken a significant leap. But, virtual reality (VR) has taken the responsibility to entirely transform the health industry by eliminating those fears and assisting in providing training to the students as well as physicians. 

Moffitt Cancer Center is partnering with Ringling College of Art and Design to take advantage of all the resources that VR has to offer. The two institutions will combine resources to concentrate on developing creative content for digital healthcare technologies like animations for patient education, virtual reality, and training videos. Over the next ten years, Moffitt wishes to deliver encouraging breakthroughs with new digital and data capabilities as part of its business mission. Teaming up with Ringling College will help in escalating progress in research and patient care.

Based in Florida, Moffitt is a national cancer institute designated as Comprehensive Cancer Center. The center focuses on patient care education along with research to advance their fight against Cancer. It offers exemplary compensation and benefits, which includes dental, medical and vision insurance, retirement plans, paid time off and many more.

The collaboration will focus on developing meaningful tools for the suffering patients to decrease their stress levels, improve their understanding of the upcoming treatments as well as connect them through survivor stories to encourage them and decrease their loneliness.

In addition, the collaboration will prioritize projects for the students of Ringling College across all the majors, which will help in expanding their career opportunities, simultaneously increasing the number of creative resources that Moffitt can offer its patients.

The professional advancement presented by this collaborated engagement has enabled the instructors and students to use their creativity for a project to help the cancer patients.

Moffitt and Ringling will also be exploring the possibility of developing a VR healthcare innovations lab, participating in joint research projects and publications, and building a technology lecture series, where faculty and students can engage with each other. This teamwork can change the way technology is used in healthcare domain like VR.
