Slide 20: The Fourth D (”Drugs”): Google Glass Administering Treatments

(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.)


The example in the original blog post was about making sure the right patients gets right medication at right time in right place and right dose. Glass, subject to certain technical and policy limits, can recognize faces, scan QR codes, and talk to smart medical devices via Bluetooth. Potentially, even the lowly hypodermic needle will participate in the Internet of Things, and be able to talk to Glass. However, there are lots of other things clinicians do to patients, from administer education to physical therapy, besides give them drugs. Hence the scare quotes.
