Los Angeles – January 13, 2020 – AppliedVR today announced that it has been named by FierceHealthcare as one of the 2020 Fierce 15 companies, designating it as one of the most promising healthcare companies in the industry.
AppliedVR is a leading pioneer developing the next generation of digital medicine by rethinking the way to treat serious health conditions through safe, effective, virtual reality therapeutics (VRx) that can improve clinical outcomes for patients.
