Seattle medical startup focuses on Google Glass for emergency rooms, January 28, 2014
When some people see Google Glass, they may see a hot technology trend, an expensive distraction, or a threat to privacy. When some doctors see Google Glass, they see the potential for better, more efficient patient care. One of those doctors is Carl Spitzer, M.D., of Mill Valley, California. Spitzer and Craig Rosenberg, a Ph.D based in Seattle, have co-founded Healium, a startup dedicated to developing software for Glass with an eye on how wearable computing can help physicians. This latest technology development has particular significance for Spitzer, who is not only a practicing emergency physician at Marin General Hospital, but is also its chief medical informatics officer.
