Accenture and Philips collaborate on Google glass proof-of-concept

Accenture and Royal Philips announced the creation of a proof-of-concept demonstration that uses a Google Glass™ head-mounted display. 

The demonstration connects Google Glass to Philips IntelliVue Solutions and proves the concept of seamless transfer of patient vital signs into Google Glass, potentially providing physicians with hands-free access to critical clinical information.

The new concept demonstration depicts how a doctor wearing the display could simultaneously monitor a patient’s vital signs and react to surgical procedural developments without having to turn away from the patient or procedure. A physician could also monitor a patient’s vital signs remotely or enlist assistance from doctors in other locations.
