ISG showcases game-changing technology at Private Acute Healthcare Conference

ISG’s innovative game-engine technology design solution took centre stage at the recent Private Acute Healthcare Conference in London.

Over 200 key industry decision makers, practitioners, investors, and healthcare providers gathered at the event, which was held at the Royal Society of Medicine on Thursday 11 October.  

ISG, always an industry leader in digital healthcare transformation and technological solutions, hosted a design visualisation exhibition stand, where guests could interact, engage and trial its new visualisation technology – part of a new, innovative design visualisation model. 

The technology provides a 3D life-like virtual tour of client’s projects, showcasing exactly how they will be built and covering every aspect of the building to a high degree of visual reliability. 

Delegates were taken on a virtual tour of a private clinic and health sciences laboratory, using a game console controller to allow them to visualise completed projects.

The Private Acute Healthcare Conference, hosted by healthcare market intelligence provider, LaingBuisson, joins the dots between innovation, technology, exploration and practicality, and presents the latest ideas in healthcare technologies. 

Key-note speakers, exhibitors and conference attendees discussed the challenges the private acute sector is facing, particularly around quality and governance, deliberating some of the practical steps that could be taken on quality, information and outcomes.

Special attention was paid to orthopaedics and oncology, as well as other areas including fertility, cosmetics and mental health. 

ISG Engineering Services operations director, David Broderick, and divisional director, Paul Dickson, both attended the event to showcase the benefits of ISG’s new technology in the private healthcare sector.

David said: “This is ISG’s second successful year of attendance and each time we have presented new ideas and technology in construction. 

“This year we debuted gaming technology project walkthroughs which allowed clients to visualise technical spaces, such as operating theatres. 

“Not only does this allow collaboration with the client, this approach also allows us to identify any risks or challenges facing the project at an earlier stage – it is vital for spatial design and client signoff.”

Paul added: “We approach every healthcare project with a full appreciation for the responsibility our clients have to their patients. 

“Our engineering-led approach allows us to put the needs of the client and end users first, ensuring that their health and safety is prioritised. 

“This technology is helping transform the patient experience.”

The unique combination of objective insights, discussions, exhibitor showcases, and delegate participation within the healthcare sector provided ISG with the perfect platform to network with industry leaders and further cement its name in the industry.
