Kareo creates an App for Google Glass for Patient Follow-up Instructions and Education
May 2, 2014
The foresight companies have in being able to unlock Google Glass and its potential becomes more amazing every day. Apps are being created for Glass in the healthcare industry fairly often and they seem to keep showing just how vital Google Glass may become for saving someones life, or simply to help one understand further the instructions and directions of their physician. Take for example an app created by the team over at Kareo, which claims to do just that and more.
Studies show that a majority of patients do not recall specific instructions given to them by their providers within minutes of their encounter, which can impact their health and lead to avoidable re-admissions and increased costs for the patient and the health care system. By using this app, patients can avoid this problem, and the healthcare business as a whole can see many added benefits from the use of this technology.
