XR represents an unprecedented potential for healthcare innovation, but we need to establish trust between patients and healthcare providers just like we did in making financial transactions a non-issue for people. Our collective challenge is to clearly define the data, ensure people can feel a sense of ownership over it, and put forth means to exchange that data so that it gets where it needs to go without any risk of patient harm or abuse. In short, establish TRUST between Patients and Providers just like we did with online financial transactions.

Since XR healthcare is in its infancy, we may have a window of opportunity to build something new from the ground up – together!
