Abstract

The Metaverse has the ability to restructure and change the manner in which individuals connect with one another as well as the activities that they carry out on a daily basis. One definition of a Metaverse describes it as "a virtual, digital, and three-dimensional universe formed by the integration of various cutting-edge technologies and virtual places." In this piece, we will explore the potential applications of the Metaverse in the medical field. Our conversations on the notion of the Metaverse and the primary technologies that make it possible are both thought-provoking and in-depth. In this article, we study and analyze the possible uses of the Metaverse in the healthcare industry, including telemedicine and telehealth, medical education and training, medical marketing, healthcare supply chain, healthcare facilities, as well as fitness and wellness. The primary obstacles that prevent the broad implementation of the Metaverse in healthcare are discussed in this paper. Finally, evaluating implications of leveraging Metaverse in healthcare is discussed. Best Worst Method (BWM) is deployed with Triangular Neutrosophic Sets (TriNSs) to estimate criteria’s weights where five criteria have been determined for alternatives of Metaverse. These alternatives are evaluated and ranked through weighted sum model (WSM) with help of TriNSs. The findings of this process demonstrated that Metaverse alternative 1 (MeT1) Health Surveillance is optimal according to global score. Antithesis Metaverse alternative 3 (MeT3) Virtual surgical is least one.
