Google Glass through a doctor’s eyes

John Halamka, MD, CTO of Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital in Boston, writes about his experience testing Glass in the clinical environment and sees five useful areas–documentation, alerts and reminders, ED dashboards supplementing or displacing tablets, decision support (Watson, anyone?) “Just as the iPad has become the chosen form factor for clinicians today, I can definitely see a day when computing devices are more integrated into the clothing or body of the clinician.”  Not the Object of Evil painted by the consumer IT gearheads and privacy advocates.  Perhaps an ideal place for this? But is this Editor the only one who finds that ‘Meaningful Use Stage 2’ compliance (assistive technology) in the #1 position a bit odd?  The Health Care Blog (Health 2.0) Hat tip to reader Bob Pyke via LinkedIn.
