Digital Technology continues to evolve with Google Glass expanding its reach into the medical world. Just this month the University of California, Irvine School of Medicine formally introduced Google Glass into its 4 year curriculum.
In order to make this possible & secure UC Irvine will be utilizing Pristine Eyesight, a HIPAA compliant video-based communication platform optimized for Google Glass in healthcare environments.
Built on Google Glass, EyeSight is totally hands-free. All it takes is a quick “OK Glass, start EyeSight” to start streaming HIPAA-compliant, high quality audio and video from anywhere.
Clinical Learning experiences will be enhanced by Google Glass with the ability of faculty members to see what a student sees assisting with real time instruction and simulation. The applications for Google Glass go beyond the classroom and it will be exciting to see how this new technology enhances the way medical treatments are administered in the future.
