The buzz is that Google Glass will transform medicine. But unless it’s carefully vetted it could be a disaster for patients, clinicians and hospitals. Until the FDA or research confirms its safety, Google Glass is banned from my clinic as a privacy and medical practice hazard.
Here are four reasons why:
1. Privacy violations. Google Glass make it extremely easy to take pictures or video of someone without permission. Congress has already raised concerns about Google’s unwillingness to ensure privacy protection for non-users in the general public. The bar should be higher in medicine than the general public.
2. Hackable. Even if used responsibly by clinicians, that doesn’t mean patients and medical practices aren’t at risk of privacy violations and abuse. Computers can be hacked; remote access software can allow someone to film/photograph without the users’ knowledge.
3. Safety concerns with multitasking. Privacy concerns aside, the promise of be able to do more in medicine doesn’t mean we do it better. There have been recent concerns about “distracted doctors” with too much technology to focus on the task at hand. To make it worse, doctors may think multitasking improves performance when it actually worsens it. Some of the decreased performance may lessen with experience, but that means potential distractions like Google Glass may require some formal training before routine use in clinic.
4. Google’s And medicine’s goals aren’t aligned. “Don’t be evil” sounds like it might fit with medicine. But increasingly Google seems to apply this stated credo to its customers rather than itself.

iOS 7 is the biggest change to Apple's mobile OS since it was born all the way back in 2007. The risk for Apple now is that the OS redesign disrupts its own user-base, so here’s one sign of how Cupertino is managing the change: it’s updated the App Store to offer a prompt to iOS devices that aren’t compatible with the latest version/s of iOS enabling them to download the “last compatible version” of the app.
