GOOGLE GLASS IN HEALTHCARE AND BEYOND

GOOGLE GLASS IN HEALTHCARE AND BEYOND | FASHIONS & DESIGNERS eDIGEST | Scoop.it

These are images from the Google Glass Tech Focus that we filmed at the Kaiser Permanente Center for Total Health on July 11, 2013 , which are actually mockups because Google Glass can’t do this automatically .. yet.

 

Now that I’ve had some time to work with Glass, I can see a situation where a QR code might be presented on the exam room monitor or somewhere else in the workflow to allow the practitioner quick access to electronic health record details, or of course through voice commands (but I think QR might be quicker..).

 

There is a lot of discussion about using Glass for surgery and high tech health care (and there’s nothing wrong with that, I love surgeons and was trained by excellent ones as a family physician), so we created a scenario that involves using technology to connect us to patients better.

Jennifer Jackson's curator insight, August 19, 2013 12:14 PM

not sure I'm a believer yet, but I'm hopeful that applications for Glass will support healthcare beyond just another EHR reader...

Martijn Verver's curator insight, August 20, 2013 3:49 PM

Her en der duikt Google Glass op in de operatiekamers. Het Raboudziekenhuis had de Nederlandse primeur. In de berichtgeving werd de nadruk gelegd op hoe de studenten, die anders onhandig over een schouder mee moeten kijken, nu 'met de ogen van de chirurg' de operatie op een scherm veel beter konden volgen. En dat allemaal dankzij Google Glass.. Vijftien jaar geleden konden we al een internetpersoonlijkheid 34 uur per dag volgen, omdat hij een camera op zijn hoofd had geplakt en live alles wat hij zag de wereld in streamde. Google Glass biedt hier dus geen toegevoegde waarde behalve wellicht draagcomfort.

 

Wat ook naar voren komt in het filmpje waarin Lucien Engelen wordt geïnterviewd naar voren komt, is juist de interactiviteit die Goolge Glass zo baanbrekend maakt. Het dossier met een paar woorden opvraagbaar. En in dit artikel vertelt een huisarts hoe het ook de interactie met de patient beter, menselijker kan maken. Door bijvoorbeeld informatie over iemands familie tevoorschijn te kunnen toveren en eventuele klachten ook te kunnen relateren aan de thuissituatie of levensstijl.

nrip's comment, August 21, 2013 9:23 AM
@jennifer I am sure of that. The whole process of EMRization of healthcare is but a 1st step in bringing technology in to help healthcare. And as all first steps of most things in life.. it is the one which is difficult, painful and most criticized. I know it could have been done better, but whats more important is whether the next set of steps will start helping out doctors and patients more directly and without inflicting so much pain as the EMR transition did.

HOW WILL WEARABLE TECH CHANGE HEALTHCARE?

HOW WILL WEARABLE TECH CHANGE HEALTHCARE? | FASHIONS & DESIGNERS eDIGEST | Scoop.it

The wearable technology trend is beginning to take off and two big health organizations want to make sure that they’re not left behind.  This week, health technology company Qualcomm Life and California health system Palomar Health announced the creation of an incubator for exploring the applications of wearable computing in medicine.

 

Called Glassomics, the joint program, first reported by MedCityNews, will look at both clinical and consumer applications of health-related wearable technology. Although the name is clearly a nod to Google Glass, it sounds like the incubator won’t limit itself to Google devices.

 

In a statement, the companies said Glassomics is intended to encourage industry partnerships in research and development efforts and would encompass a range of uses, from patient data monitoring to augmented reality-enhanced clinical applications to genomic information mapping and visualization. The incubator will be housed at Palomar and will make use of Qualcomm Life’s 2net platform, which is the company’s universally-interoperable network for collecting and sharing biometric data from connected health devices.
