The Role of Google Glass in Healthcare

I picked up my google GLASS last week and so far I am very happy with them. Describing them with words would not do them justice. Since many colleagues and friends have been asking about them I decided to make a small video. Please excuse video quality and lack of editing. I am moving and not much time in my hands

The first video shows the unboxing of glass, second one I briefly mention potential uses, and third the official Google Glass tutorial on getting started.

A post that you might also find helpful comes from Melissa McCormack, Managing Editor of Software Advice’s The Profitable Practice.

Google Glass: Whether or not you’re excited about its use as a consumer device, you have to recognize the potential benefits it can offer the medical community. Software Advice, a company that connects medical software buyers to live expertise, contemplates a few of the potential uses for Glass in health care.

One exciting possibility is the use of Glass in surgery. There are the academic uses of course: a surgeon live-streaming her procedure to a group of medical students, or a surgical resident streaming his procedure to a supervising physician. Compared to current video conferencing technology, Glass would save time in setup and provide an easy and compelling first-person view of the action.

But there are other potential surgical uses as well. For example, a surgeon could video conference with consulting specialists during a procedure – and that feedback could be delivered directly to his plane of vision, rather than the surgeon having to reference a peripheral screen.

Along those same lines, think about surgeries where X-ray, ultrasound, or camera-equipped scopes are used to track positioning of surgical instruments. Those images, too, could be delivered to a surgeon “in eye” instead of him having to move focus from the patient to a screen. Here, Glass facilitates the ideal alignment of the surgeon’s attention with the patient.

To read about other potential uses of Glass in medicine, view the full article here: http://profitable-practice.softwareadvice.com/will-google-glass-change-the-face-of-medicine-0613/   below is a summary she has done of the article but I suggest checking the full article for a more descriptive experience.
