The way forward for EHR
Google Glass is now being used in the Healthcare space to enable a wearable mobile health record. The key idea is to enable physicians to work hands-free. This kind of technology would allow physicians at work to sync their laptops, tablets and phones with a single device. This would not just enable physicians to work hands-free, but also allow them to use technology to instantly update patient records.

For instance, doctors could take photos through voice command and update the patient’s medical record instantly, they could record videos of patient encounters or medical surgeries for documentation of staff, they could share real-time data streaming of patient meetings with other physicians, or the patient’s family members and much more.

This in turn would help them work more efficiently as they will be able to spend more time with the patient instead of processing paperwork.
