The future is now for Augmented Reality (AR) technology in healthcare. Unwavering commitment to enhancing the overall Patient Experience is the bedrock of Heritage Biologics (HB). We are constantly pursuing innovative solutions that can improve actual health outcomes for patients. Most recently our high-performance nursing team that specializes in home infusion therapy implemented AR venous access imaging. More simply, HB nurses can now use AR to map a patient’s veins before administration of an IV line for drug infusion. Visit: VeinViewer and AccuVein to learn more.
