Google Glass In The ER? Health Care Moves One Step Closer To Star Trek …
Kaiser Health News

Imagine walking into an emergency room with an awful rash and waiting hours to see a doctor until, finally, a physician who doesn’t have specific knowledge of your condition gives you an ointment and a referral to a dermatologist.

That could change if a technological device like Google Glass, which is a wearable computer that is smaller than an ink pen and includes a camera function, could be strapped to an emergency room doctor’s head or to his or her eyeglasses and used to beam a specialist in to see patients at the bedside.  Not only would a patient get a more specific initial diagnosis and treatment, but a second visit to a dermatologist might not be necessary.
