Google Glass Is The Future Of Healthcare In This Proof Of Concept Video

We've seen the use of Google Glass in surgery before, but there could actually be more potential there than just streaming an operation. Imagine a doctor being able to take a patient's vital stats, body temperature, heart rate and blood pressure using Google Glass. That future is not so far ahead.
Philips and Accenture have teamed up to create a proof of concept showing how a doctor can obtain vital patient data with Glass. The system would provide a surgeon with more mobility, and increase the focus on the patient. It could also be used for accessing pre-surgery safety checklists as well as recording for training purposes.
“This research explores how doctors can achieve better access to the right information at the right time so they can focus on more efficient and effective patient care," Michael Mancuso, CEO of Philips Healthcare's Patient Care and Clinical Informatics, said in a statement. "It’s a first step in researching how existing technologies can be applied to improve the quality of life of patients."
The real-time data comes from Philips' Intellivue patient monitors, and the proof-of-concept connection with Google Glass was created by researchers from Philips' Digital Accelerator Lab and Accenture Technology Labs.
