On July 22, I was honored to participate in a Hangout On Air with three Boston area physicians, two of whom are leading active projects at their Harvard Medical School research facilities. Moderated by Dr. Jennifer Joe of MedTechBoston.com, the discussion focused on how application development is proceeding, HIPAA issues and our desires for the future development of the Glass platform.
In this hour plus video you will hear honest experiences and opinions by Dr. Karandeep Singh, Nephrology Fellow at Brigham and Women’s Hospital / Massachusetts General Hospital, Software Developer, Informatician and Dr. Synho Do, Assistant Medical Director for Advanced Health Technology Engineering, Research, and Development, MGPO. We were also joined by Dr. Ismail Nabeel of Ohio State.
The general consensus is that we are now in the very early stages of a promising future for better patient care enabled by wearable technology. The wearable medical tech of the future may be Glass, something that resembles Glass or another competitor but there is little doubt that your doctor will one day have immediate access to your records without taking her eyes from you, the patient.
I’d like to personally thank John Bennett of InternetMedicine.com for hosting this hangout.
