What is the state of play with virtual patients?

Dr Rachel Ellaway from the University of Northern Ontario in Canada talks about where we are at with the research and development of virtual patients.

According to Rachel, there is a critical piece in any area of research, between innovation and creation, and then going towards it being used.

“The piece that is really troubling us in the health sciences is translational medicine,” she says. Fortunately at the 2nd International Conference on Virtual Patients and MedBiquitous Annual Meeting, Rachel sees “us moving from technology in it’s raw, laboratory sense, to moving into practice.”
