Evaluation of health practitioners
The 3D Digital Metaverse Assessment Service will enable the ministry to remotely evaluate health practitioners, including doctors and allied health professionals. This service will also streamline procedures while maintaining data security through AI. It will be unique for its several key features, including transparency and secure remote assessment where AI will be used to ensure that personal data and medical certificates match during the assessment process.
Interactive digital sensory experience
This technology also monitors eye movements and analyzes facial expressions for the safety of the evaluation process. The 3D platform, which simulates a realistic assessment hall, provides clear roles and platforms for the judging committee, invigilators, and examinees. Users can display any necessary documents during the assessment while ensuring the confidentiality and security of all related data and records.
The innovative service will offer a 3D virtual world experience and digital sensory interaction testing, eliminating the need for physical distance. The new technology provides a practical solution for those with disabilities, unable to visit a ministry building, and for individuals outside the country to efficiently complete their transactions.
Thermal imaging technology
The new thermal imaging technology will be effectively used in detecting diabetic foot inflammation for early diagnosis and monitoring surgical sites for infection risk. It will also be used in determining psychological state through facial temperature analysis and tracking blood vessels associated with heat-producing tumors in thermal oncology, which streamlines the process of diagnosing and monitoring patients’ conditions.
Moreover, the new tech features a small camera linked to mobile phones, which is set to bring about a paradigm shift in thermal imaging services as it can be utilized in conjunction with well-established imaging techniques like X-rays, ultrasound, MRI, nuclear medicine, and CT scans.
