Boston Doc's first to use Google glasses

BOSTON (CBS) — Doctors at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center are the first in the country to be using Google Glass technology to save valuable seconds.
Google introduced the Glass technology in 2013 and only a limited number of people have been able to try it. Beth Israel Deaconess is the first hospital in the world to use the high-tech classes for direct patient care.
Dr. Steven Horng is an emergency room physician who spearheaded a program to bring the technology to the ER.
What they do is project an image of the patient’s screens so information about the patient is obtained right away. Information like the patient’s name, their past medical history, even X-rays can all come up with Google Glass and could be life-saving, especially if a patient can’t communicate or doesn’t know their allergies and medications.
