From helping treat those with PTSD to enhancing retail experiences, virtual reality’s use cases are far-reaching and transformational. VR’s potential to improve the impact of human services is untapped. By creating a learning environment that uses immersive storytelling and interactive voice-based scenarios, VR can completely transform how front line staff in human services hone their skills and professional judgement. Accenture is doing just that for child welfare. Our goal? Accelerate the pace with which caseworkers become seasoned decision makers, thereby increasing the likelihood that more children are safe and free from harm.
