Three Wire Systems, LLC recently announced its VetAdvisor Virtual Room (VVR) won the U.S. Army Simulation & Training Technology Center’s Federal Virtual Worlds Challenge for best collaboration in a virtual world by a government contractor. The award was presented on the final day of the Defense GameTech Users’ Conference in Orlando on March 31.
Three Wire’s VetAdvisor Virtual Room is an expansion of the successful VetAdvisor Support Program with the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, which offers telehealth and virtual health delivery platforms for veteran mental health care. The program is designed to provide support when and where the veteran chooses, thus supporting the Veteran Centered Medical Home Care Model.
Providing a secure meeting place for veterans and Care Coaches (licensed behavior health professionals) to interact, the VetAdvisor Virtual Room features avatars representing both the veterans and Care Coaches.
This tool is just one of a growing list of virtual world technologies used by government agencies.
Pillsbury’s Virtual Worlds team is proud to assist Three Wire on this and other projects.
