Wearable Intelligence

Wearable Intelligence is raising a $8.4 million, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Said filing notes that the San Francisco-based company has secured $7.9 million of the target amount and has been building the round since August 6, 2014.

Among the current Wearable Intelligence investors are such names as Google Ventures, First Round, Andreessen Horowitz, KPCB, Initialized Capital, and Subtracted Capital.

The company is focused on bringing Google Glass software to healthcare and energy sectors. In a hospital setting, their software can pull data from an electronic health records (EHR) system, as well as deliver real-time vitals data streams, clinical alerts, and notifications of errors or exception conditions. Moreover, doctors can get patient lists all with the room number, patient name, chief complaint, resident assigned, labs, vitals, radiology data, lab results, and more.

Wearable Intelligence has already tested its technology and doctors apparently love it. Earlier this year, we’ve seen an emergency room doctor in Israel using Google Glass equipped with Wearable Intelligence software to quickly access patient’s health records.

Beyond healthcare, the company is also targeting the energy sector for its Glass apps.
