Could wearable technology help support the human side of the relationship in the exam room and beyond?

Could wearable technology help support the human side of the relationship in the exam room and beyond? | Chiropractic | 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.

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.

@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.
