Dr. Rehani was featured on Press Here on role of virtual reality and how Health4theworld has used it in education and mobile applications.

“The 100% volunteer-led organization is working to share health information with doctors and patients around the world to improve health outcomes. Everything they offer is entirely free to the doctors, other healthcare professionals and the patients.”

“The problem is huge and the solution has to be something sustainable,” Rehani said. “Our aim is to create one of the largest systems where anybody in the world can access information they can use to help their patients.”

Our aim is to create an app that is a friend, which they love so much they want to use it every day,” Rehani said. “Something that makes them smile even if they’re having a bad day or lying alone in bed without family members.”

“We have created machine learning based chatbots to educate health care providers and engage patients. Virtual reality is being used for education of health care providers and mind exercises for patient”

“That vision became the blueprint for Health4TheWorld, a not-for-profit digital platform that provides educational training to clinicians as well as medical information to patients in underserved regions”

“When we travel, people often say, ‘We don’t have free educational tools in health. Why not, when we have free educational tools in tech?'” Rehani said.
