Startup launches ‘first wearable health record’ for Google Glass


By Christina Farr SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Google Incs futuristic eyeglasses are finding their way into hospitals and clinics throughout the United States. To meet the growing demand for Google Glass from physicians, Drchrono, a Mountain View, Calif., based electronic medical record company has developed a new application for the device it claims is the first wearable health record. Doctors who register for the Drchrono app for Glass can use it to record a consultation or surgery with the patients permission. Videos, photos and notes are stored in the patients electronic medical record or in Box, a cloud-based storage and collaboration service and can be shared with the patient on request. Dr. Bill J. Metaxas, a podiatrist based in San Francisco, warned fellow physicians to take precautions before using Glass, such as obtaining patient consent and locking down security settings. He also said Glass is no more or less secure than tablet devices such as the iPad, which are routinely used in clinical practices.
