Three Harvard hospitals pilot Google Glass app Remedy
Developer of a Google Glass app for doctors, Remedy, launched a pilot study with three Harvard hospitals in which they will provide physicians assistants who are handling night coverage in hospitals — a time when doctors are not around as often as during the day — with Google Glass so that they can send their point of view videos to supervising doctors. From this pilot, Remedy will measure how much the Google Glass system changes the status quo for how healtcare providers manage the workflow of cases. The company also wants to measure patient perception and adoption rates on the surgeon side and the physician's assistant side.
