Medical Applications of Google Glass Growing

Augmedix, one of several start-ups devising applications for Goggle Glass in health care, is developing a seamless way for Glass-wearing doctors to push information to and from electronic health records (EHRs). A recent study in the International Journal of Medical Informatics found that doctors who use EHRs in the exam room spend much of their time looking at the computer screen rather than at the patient. The Augmedix product would record information from the doctor-patient interaction automatically and potentially boost “face time.” Meanwhile, Austin, TX-based Pristine has developed an app that lets Glass-wearing physicians transmit HIPAA-compliant video and audio of patients to authorized computers. The idea is to enable real-time consults with specialists located remotely from the patient. (See related OrthoBuzz item from Jan. 30, 2014.)
