Futuristic Approach to Health Applications in Metaverse Environment

Eda Tanoğlu, Selçuk Bayer


The healthcare system in Metaverse provides an interactive, immersive and recreational healthcare experience customized to meet the needs of individual patients. The metaverse consists of advanced technology revolutions such as artificial intelligence, augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), telepresence, digital mirroring, and blockchain (Park, 2022) that have had a major impact on healthcare (Park, 2022). The development of virtual health institutions and even virtual physicians, where health services can be provided in the metaverse environment, will contribute to the development of sustainable health systems in many respects. It is common for areas such as health education, daily disease management, virtual consultation, psychological and dietitian counseling to be transferred to the metaverse environment and carried out effectively. The fact that the legal infrastructure in this area is not yet developed in the world, the licensing and the feasibility of the necessary tests while developing technologies on an important issue such as health, the need for time and money, the existence of cyber security risks, as in all other virtual systems are seen as obstacles to the transport of the health sector to the metaverse environment. Despite the fact that the demand for health is increasing day by day and the number of trained health personnel is limited, there is a potential for development in this field, although it contains issues that are open to discussion.
