drchrono, the creator of a free Electronic Health Record (EHR) platform on the iPad, iPhone and cloud, has integrated Google Glass into its EHR platform to build what it says is the first Wearable Health Record (WHR). This in turn will allow for hands-free experience for doctors, who will be able to completely focus on the patient.
Using drchrono with Google Glass, doctors will be able to seamlessly flip through patient profiles, get real-time notifications and review medical data without using their hands.“The iPad was a new consumption device that changed the world, and now we are seeing that doctors want to use more and more hands-free technology,” said Michael Nusimow, CEO and co-founder of drchrono. “Glass is one of the first of its kind to do this. A physician wants to practice medicine and not be burdened with all of the paperwork that goes on in the practice. We knew this would be an important app to integrate into our EHR platform, and we’re excited to now offer this to doctors using drchrono.”
By using the Glass with drchrono, doctors are able to take photos and record videos without having to touch anything that could get their hands infected. There’s also the ability to stream patient encounters so that other physicians, patients’ family members, or scribes can watch the procedure live as it happens. drchrono can pull-in recorded data, while also enabling seamless flipping through patient profiles on the heads-up display, push real-time notifications about who has come into the office with alerts about patients coming in or needing help, and make reviewing medical data about patients a hands free experience.
In the other drchrono news, the company also announced expanded platform integration with Box by enabling medical data captured with Glass to be available on Box’s cloud content platform.
