RI Hospital ER begins Google Glass dermatology study

MobiHealthNews, March 12, 2014
Rhode Island Hospital has begun a feasability study using Google Glass to provide dermatology consultations to patients in the emergency room. For six months, emergency room patients who require a dermatology consult and consent to the study will be examined by ER physicians wearing a stripped-down version of Google Glass. The wearable will transmit images to an off-site dermatologist, who will access them via a tablet. The hospital is working with Glass-focused startup Pristine on the pilot. Pristine developed the stripped-down version of Glass that eliminates HIPAA concerns by removing some of the device's core functionality and connectivity.
