Google Glass Healthcare in Your Electronic Health Records


Check out how Google Glass works within drchrono



drchrono was started with a focus on mobile healthcare. When the team endeavored to create the best mobile experience we first built on iPad. It only made sense, the screen was a good size where physicians can see and show lots of medical data points. The iPad is leading strong with no real tablet competition. iPad was and will be drchrono’s focus for a long time, yet from time to time our team looks out to see how we can expand and push the boundaries of innovation. This brings us to Google Glass. Google Glass has some of the amazing hardware features we look for when developing, it is an amazing piece of hardware that changes the way a medical professional can see, literally. Having not only an iPad in hand, imagine if a physician can see more data without picking up a device. Google Glass is just that, Glass is a head set frame a doctor can wear, basically like glasses and can see data points from the side of the glasses. Visual tools are part of our future, building on the right hardware only makes sense.

We have put together a few designs here on how we might be leveraging Google Glass in the near future.

  1. Hi,
    I work with electronic medical records. One of the main complaints I hear is doctors don’t to stare at a computer screen, they want to interact, face to face, with their patients. I want to explore Google glass and EMR integration.

  2. I’ve written and presented extensively on medical documentation, EMRs, coding (not computer) etc. I have felt for 20 years that if something truley intuitive, mobile and interactive were out there it would blow all other systems away. Most of my work has been in emergency medicine where EMRs have been such a production killer that there is a booming “Scribe” industry. Be happy to discuss some of my thoughts some time

  3. Any technology that could help take the eyes of physicians from their desktop monitor to the patient sitting before them should be encouraged. Google Glass could be just what the doctor ordered, literally!
