107 From Prototype to Prominence: Transforming Clinical Education at Alcon
10:45 AM - 11:45 AM Tuesday, June 25
How do you go from a concept to a VR platform with global distribution and analytics that proves efficacy? Producing VR content is challenging without a long-term plan for software monitoring and iteration. Where do you start?
We will provide the roadmap, from concept to execution, of a multi-national VR training software suite and management program produced by Elara for Alcon. In this breakdown we'll guide you through both the vision of a long-term VR content network, and the individual steps we took to launch this successful interactive education platform. You’ll learn how to reveal value to key stakeholders, the best points to leverage partners during the process, and more about the various tools and techniques used. Finally, we’ll help you understand how to better define and measure success of a multi-stage rollout of VR.
In this session, you will learn:
