How Doctors Are Currently Leveraging a Google Glass Startup
Augmedix collects and stores patients' electronic health records while conversation transpires with physician
In the traditional medical office, physicians will spend hours manually searching for and entering health data about their patients. The data entry processes ultimately draws a doctor away from more significant and serious tasks, and one health-care startup is using Google Glass to restructure how physicians interact with their patients’ records in order to maximize impact.
Augmedix, the first and largest Google Glass company, automatically collects patients’ health records for physicians during real-time conversation. A doctor who sports the hardware can seamlessly retrieve and push data to major electronic records, swipe through pages of a health chart and gather stats about medical history through voice command. If a doctor notes something unusual on their patient’s skin, they can capture an image to follow-up or reference later with a simple finger gesture.
