Who could have guessed that a company that began its life ranking web pages and mapping out web searches would create technology that rocks our world?
Search engine giant Google is doing just that with its wearable computer called Google Glass. More and more healthcare workers and researchers are concluding that Google Glass has the potential to revolutionize the medical field and save lives.
One Boston hospital has already developed a custom information retrieval system using Google Glass and QR codes. It’s speeding up patient access to care in emergency rooms.
The wearable computer can be used in surgery. It’s being researched as a tool for rapidly communicating with pharmacies, providing medical training, and even for use by emergency medical technicians in the field.
In medicine, Google Glass has the potential to be nothing short of lifesaving. And that’s amazing.
