Imagine several medical scenarios using Google Glass:
- An emergency responder arriving at a motor vehicle accident is able to live stream to the emergency department the status of the patients and the associated trauma suffered to a patient. The ER is then able to assemble and prepare for a patient’s emergency treatment.
Imedicalapps.com points out some great uses of a solution like Google Glasses in healthcare. However, Google shouldn’t be the company of choice to deliver these services until they acknowledge and address their privacy issues for the healthcare industry. Also, there are some surgeons that have been outspoken about how a Google Glass type solution are a distraction.
It may happen but it won’t be Google Glass as it stands right now.
