Slide 19: The Third D (Decisions): Google Glass Just-In-Time Clinical Decision Support

(Take me to the beginning of these slides, from my Society for Health Systems Healthcare Systems Process Improvement Conference presentation on Google Glass and health IT workflow, immediately before HIMSS14. Text accompanying slides is colloquial because it was transcribed from audio recording.)


When I was a medical student I sent all my white coats home to have my mom sew on enormous pockets, into which I put enormous medical textbooks for reference, sometimes while running down a hall. I could have stopped a uranium-tipped anti-tank bullet. Currently resident use smart phones and tablet for the same. Glass will be great for pulling up documentation about clinical decision support and guidelines. Some of these will even be interactive. I worked on a prototype for yes/no decision trees in which nodding my head, up and down for yes and sideways for no, traversed the tries. There’s a just-in-time CPR app useing the music from Staying Alive (with an outline of Travolta) to prompt chest compression timing.
