UK hospitals could adopt ‘hologram receptionists’

UK hospitals could adopt ‘hologram receptionists’
NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde is exploring the adoption of ‘hologram’ receptionists that can work alongside hospital staff in Scottish hospitals.

The hospital trust’s procurement department has extended a market sounding document via Public Contracts Scotland, which aims to explore current market capability in ‘holographic technology’ that can work alongside its existing hospital receptionist staff.

The adoption could see lifelike ‘holographic’ avatars providing wayfinding services to patients and visitors throughout the hospitals in multiple languages, supplementing or perhaps replacing physical receptionists in hospital spaces.

The market sounding process is currently ongoing.
