Can Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG)’s Enterprise Google Glass Revolutionize The Healthcare Industry?
Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL)’s Google Glass is promising to modernize the healthcare industry in a number of important ways. One of the ways is significantly improving the number of surgeons in training. A number of professional surgeons and medical schools have put Google Glass to test and they are impressed by its potential in revolutionizing the healthcare industry.
Alphabet’s Google is working with a number of corporate partners to make Google Glass more relevant for enterprise application. Of the 10 enterprise partners that Google has attracted to help build enterprise capabilities into the Glass, five of them are in the healthcare sector.
Google Glass in healthcare
In a recent case, surgeons in Warsaw used Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG)’s Google Glass as one of their tools in a heart operation. The Glass enhanced the visibility of the surgeons, simplifying navigation and improving operation accuracy.
Boosting the number of trainee surgeons
Due to typical medical practices, there can only be a few trainee surgeons at a given time in an operating theatre. Even so, only the minority of those preset in the operating room have a great view of the procedures. The complexity of having many trainee surgeons in the operating room and ensuring that they all have a decent view of the process has limited the number of surgeons in training globally.
However, Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG)’s Google Glass is promising to change that by making it possible to train the maximum number of surgeons possible around the world. For example, a number of medical schools are already taking Glass into the operating room to capture surgery procedures that their students can learn from. Perhaps that doesn’t sound as a novel idea because there are already ways to capture videos of operating theatre procedures. However, Google Glass brings the level of interaction that existing tools cannot, which is why it is favored in virtual training of medical students in surgery matters.
