• Take photos and videos • Search for medical terms • Locate billing codes • Make telephone calls • Document notesAlong with many other perks, they also listed some improvements that could be made to the device, such as the battery life and hearing audio conversations. With the overwhelming amount of people signing up to test Google Glass, the device will receive more enhancements before its official launch. One of our team members, Jessie Koljonen (pictured), tried Google Glass firsthand at an information session last month.

"I had the opportunity to try Google Glass at a lecture that I attended at a local medical school. The talk I went to demonstrated how Google Glass can help with CPR by connecting bystanders with paramedics, who can instruct them how to do chest compressions. Through Google Glass, the paramedics can see a live feed of what is happening so they can better instruct the bystander before the ambulance arrives. I think it's a really neat concept and has big opportunity for use in the medical field and telemedicine. "Telehealth providers will not only be able to communicate directly with patients on Google Glass, but they’ll also be able to scan medications, capture images, and send information to the appropriate parties. This will be especially important in a time where real-time data is becoming necessary in healthcare delivery. Tools that help keep patients and providers up-to-date may help prevent medical errors. This technology could also increase efficiency, collaboration, and education. As a provider, how would you use Google Glass in your practice?
