Novartis VR Learning – Medical Training/Education
Pharmaceutical industry leader Novartis had to quickly train hundreds of people on best practice production and aseptic procedures for a new leukemia treatment. They had limited physical training labs and SMEs to train people on skills where mistakes have life and death consequences. It turned to a VR consulting firm to develop a new state-of-the-art virtual reality (VR) simulation.
In this innovative sim, learners strap on a VR headset, grab hand controllers and step into a hyper-realistic virtual manufacturing facility to practice life-saving procedures. Walking around in a virtual reality room, they will weld tubes, remove bag caps, label bags, sanitize their hands, spike bags and lots more. Novartis is using advanced VR methods to develop learning simulators modeled on the flight simulator, which has been the gold standard for skill-based learning. Its employees are trained like the famed Captain Sully, who landed his disabled airliner on the Hudson River on January 15, 2009, saving scores of lives.
