Smart Glasses- A Powerful Healthcare Asset


The healthcare sector is a crucial part of every community where advanced technologies are always needed to provide better services to the patients. It depends on healthcare professionals how they carry out this digital transformation. Which technologies require upgradation? More importantly how it will be done?

Long ago in ancient times, the healthcare system was just confined to one home setup where treatments were provided using natural herbs, not tools. Over time, people started introducing innovative tools to make healthcare provision more effective and efficient. Moreover, these digital tools appear more refined with high-quality specs for better patient care.

Digitalization started well before the pandemic began. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 led to the transformation of physical documents to electronic medical records (EMRs). Since 2018, each patient has more than 80 megabytes of EMR and imaging information each year.  EMRs are quite manageable in isolation however, the management becomes more challenging as the volume increases.

In 2021, telemedicine and at-distance diagnoses gained popularity in the healthcare sector due to COVID-19. As per PWC, all healthcare providers are addressing challenges, and developing solutions where the introduction of smart glasses will be a big world-shattering hit.

Why Smart Glasses can be a big hit in the world?

During the pandemic season, Bewer is quite concerned about the social distancing in the healthcare sector. However, the addition of exemplified smart glasses fetches improved diagnostics, like, if you are miles away from healthcare providers, you can get a practitioner or even your colleague to assist in diagnosis, the usage of glasses can deliver the diagnostic data from an artificial intelligence consultant. Along with it, other telemedicine applications can also be useful such as AR glasses for EMRs, which also show the importance of wearables for key health data.

All these applications help the healthcare professionals in providing the best possible services during the pandemic.

Benefits of Wearable Technology

Following are the major benefits of using wearables for healthcare practitioners:

  • With Hand-free documentation using smart glasses, doctors can easily restore the key patient data without manual data entry.
  • The application of telemedicine can easily assess the prescriptions at a distance.
  • The data can be recorded automatically through EMR management.
  • Rapid diagnosis can be carried out with the help of AI algorithms.
  • AR glasses can help to give education and training awareness programs
  • Live broadcasting through AR devices can play an instrumental role in recording medical procedures as well as live streaming them for helping in surgeries etc.

Smart glasses and other wearables provide a new direction to the healthcare sector during COVID-19. Fingers crossed for a better future!
