Today Health House celebrates its 2nd anniversary since its opening in March 2018. We have already welcomed more than 10,000 visitors and took them on a journey through the future of healthcare. Not only medical professionals (hospital directors, doctors, nurses) but also companies active in healthcare, pharmaceutical companies, students and policy makers have been introduced to the latest research and technological developments in healthcare.
The uniqueness of Health House is the "immersive storytelling" of scientifically validated topics. Science communication can sometimes be complex, but strong visualizations and interactive elements such as 3D, Virtual Reality, Motion tracking and a digital dissection table allow our visitors to discover and experience the content in a unique way. In this way the message lingers much better and people are better informed. In total we now have 11 storylines within Health House:
Brain surgery is always frightening and therefore good information is essential. Normally, patients receive explanations during the neurological/neurosurgery consultation, but often a lot of questions arise afterwards.
The DBS SELECT storyline aims to offer this information in a more interactive way and to involve the patient more in the process. The uniqueness of the 'DBS SELECT' storyline is its personal touch. On the screens, testimonials from different patients are shown. They talk about their experience and experience before and after surgery. They give an honest picture of what went well and where the expectations were different.
Since opening in March 2018 we’ve hosted various events (over 420!) at Health House ranging from guided tours, corporate events, press releases to consultation for companies on the impact of technology on healthcare. An overview of some use cases in collaboration with Health House:
We see Health House becoming the knowledge platform on the future of healthcare with a broad knowledge network and the capabilities of translating science and health communication in a unique experience.
