GOOGLE GLASS IMPROVES HEALTH SYSTEM WORKFLOW: Physicians at California-based health system Sutter Health are using Google's augmented reality (AR) enabled Glasses to cut back on the amount of time they spend on administrative tasks, according to mHealthIntelligence. Google Glass devices are embedded with mHealth tech from Augmedix — a company that makes software for smartglasses. With the physician wearing the Glasses, Sutter's remote scribes can "sit in" on the visit, taking notes in real-time as the physician sees to the patient. Doctors can also use the glasses to pull up patient files and look up health information without having to turn away from the patient. In addition to improving the physician-patient relationship, the tech streamlines the process of note taking, immediately storing it in the electronic health record server. This cuts down on the amount of time physicians spend writing notes after the session and reduces the risk of physician burnout, which can negatively impact productivity and customer relations. Physician burnout affects 32% of clinicians in the US, according to a survey by Medscape.
