Mountain View, CA-Drchrono Inc. has integrated Google Glass into its EHR platform to build the first wearable health record (WHR).
Google Glass moves into the operating room
“The iPad was a new consumption device that changed the world, and now we are seeing that doctors want to use more and more hands-free technology. Glass is one of the first of its kind to do this,” says Michael Nusimow, CEO and co-founder of drchrono. “A physician wants to practice medicine and not be burdened with all of the paperwork that goes on in the practice. We knew this would be an important app to integrate into our EHR platform, and we’re excited to now offer this to doctors using drchrono.”
Drchrono says doctors could use Google Glass to:
• Take pictures in any setting that will be pulled into the patient’s medical record without having to touch anything that could contaminate the doctor’s hands
• Record videos of patient encounters or medical surgeries to document, so that medical staff and scribes can code in asynchronous time offline, and view the video to add codes after the encounter
• Stream data of patient encounters in real time so that doctors can have other physicians, patients’ family members, or scribes watching anywhere in the world while the physician can focus on the patient
• Flip through patient profiles on the heads-up display-with the tap of a finger, physicians can quickly preview a list of all of the patients they are seeing for the day
• Getting real-time notifications about who has come into the office
• Reviewing medical data about patients hands-free
