Hospital Joins the Metaverse for the First Time in India!


MetaverseThe Yashoda Hospitals is the first healthcare provider in India to set its foot on a Metaverse

The Yashoda Hospitals Group, Hyderabad on Thursday announced its entry into the Metaverse platform. It is one of the Best Multispecialty Hospitals in Hyderabad, committed to offering inimitable and evidence-based health care services. This hospital will provide medical treatment to the patients through a Metaverse, the virtual world on the internet that simulates human emotions and gestures. Experience zones have been set up to commemorate the organization’s more than three decades of service to the general public. This makes Yashoda Hospitals the first healthcare provider in the country to set its footprint on a Metaverse platform.


The Yashoda Hospitals footprint on a Metaverse platform:

The Yashoda Hospitals Group has acquired a plot of land on Decentraland, the popular Metaverse platform, and has set up an experience zone to mark the 30-plus years of healthcare service it has offered. Decentraland is software running on Ethereum that seeks to incentivize a global network of users to operate a shared virtual world. Decentraland users can buy and sell digital real estate, while exploring, interacting, and playing games within this virtual world.

Setting up the presence on Decentraland is the first step towards our efforts and acceptance of decentralized tech, it will continue to upgrade and invest in making our digital infrastructure future-ready. And this is the first time a Japanese medical establishment has done so on an international metaverse platform.

Director of Yashoda Hospitals, Dr. Abhinav Gorukanti said since the beginning we have aimed to be progressive as a group, we have many firsts to our credit, including clinical excellence, infrastructure, and innovation. We have been early adopters of digital technology that adds value to our ecosystem, from Web 1.0 to Web 2.0 and now Web 3.0.

Web 3.0 is the third generation of the evolution of web technologies. The web, also known as the World Wide Web, is the foundational layer for how the internet is used, providing website and application services. The emergence of new technologies like bitcoin and Web 3.0, will hasten the transition from centralized to decentralized ecosystems. The future will be driven by core technologies like the Blockchain and Web 3.0, moving from a centralized to a decentralized ecosystem.

Yashoda hospital having the ability to provide not just medical services but also professional opportunities to the people of the metaverse will be a huge benefit to the hospital organization once the platform regulations have matured. When the Metaverse platforms and regulatory norms mature, Yashoda Hospitals intends to offer healthcare services to the people on the Metaverse, and in the process create employment for Metaversians as well.

The Yashoda Hospitals’ goal is to create an environment that would help anyone in the metaverse who wants to pursue a career in medicine. Virtual clinics and hospitals may be possible in the future. The idea that the metaverse includes both real and virtual realms is interesting.
