There’s no doubt that it is crucial for medical students and new doctors and nurses to learn how to interact with patients. Thanks to Ron Goldman’s Kognito, doctors at 15 hospitals across the U.S. and students at the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing and University of Michigan School of Nursing have the ability to practice talking to patients. Kognito, a health simulation company, has created tech that allows those that work in healthcare to interact with what seems like real, responsive, even emotional virtual patients. Goldman, a long-time tech innovator, is working hard to bring more technology like this into the health sector.

Goldman recognizes the importance of new technologies in improving healthcare-related experiences, explaining:

“The program helps clinicians know how to collaborate with patients, not just lecture to them.”
