Just south of Dallas, Lancaster’s Crescent Regional Hospital is the first hospital in the U.S. to integrate life-size hologram technology from Netherlands-based Holoconnects. The Holobox hologram display and video studio will enable doctors to “teleport” as a life-size 3D hologram and connect with patients in real time. It’s just one way Crescent Regional aims to be “the hospital of the future.”

“Teleporting our doctors in real time to connect and speak with our patients from any location as a life-size hologram gives our patients access to the healthcare they deserve. It also saves our doctors one of their most precious resources—time—enabling them to see as many patients as possible,” Raji Kumar, CEO and managing partner of Crescent Regional Hospital, said in a statement.

The hospital also plans to install 24-inch Holobox Mini displays at several locations throughout its facility and associated clinics.
