Novant Health develops VR tool for difficult conversations in the workplace

Triad Inno reports (subscription required) that Novant Health has deployed a new way to approach difficult conversations in the workplace – virtual reality (VR).

In partnership with the Novant Health Innovation Lab and virtual reality provider Moth+Flame, the Winston-Salem health system has deployed new tools for leadership development and training. Using VR headsets, Novant leaders and employees will participate in an immersive, voice-activated VR experience designed to help leaders approach sensitive issues.

“Health care is extremely personal and can sometimes require difficult conversations,” said Chere Gregory, Senior Vice President and Chief Health Equity Officer at Novant Health. “I’m proud to be part of an organization that is committed to investing in forward-thinking training and development, giving our team members the confidence and ability to have these needed conversations with fellow team members and/or their patients.”
