The Sharecare Reality Lab is an immersive patient engagement tool that's leveraging virtual reality to enhance an individual's understanding of a diagnosis or upcoming medical procedure.

Through offering a 360-degree video patients are provided with a deeper understanding of their anatomy through an accurate simulation of the human body. This tool is being used as a method of education by providing a narrative-driven scientific explanation of various diseases, conditions, treatments and therapies. When on the road to recovery, these deep visualizations enable an individual to interact with personal health habits and goals that differ from traditional methods of 2D models and textbook explanations.

The Sharecare Reality Lab system invites patients to create personal health profiles, that can track progress and provide doctors and physicians with more intimate insights regarding a patient's understanding and concerns.
