More whiz-bang tech. The latest iPhone now supports more augmented reality, by allowing the app access to a video stream of someone practicing shooting hoops and giving feedback in REAL TIME as to the spots from which shots are attempted and made. In other words, AI now auto-processes video that used to take hours of video TAPE pored over by coaches and players, and simplifies this into a device we already carry. (OK, those of us with >$1000 disposable income and a desire for the latest and greatest geek toy).

But, think, if we applied this to healthcare, would we use this to:

  • Monitor patient meals by automatically calculating what is being consumed?
  • Watch how patients are flowing through clinic to learn how to optimize efficiency?
  • See how ER patients are doing in the waiting area and triage and in the treatment areas?
  • Watch for improved efficiency in procedural areas like endoscopies, bronchoscopies, cath labs?
  • Watch how minor procedures are performed and suggest tweaks to clinician performance without the shame of having a human supervisor around?

CMIO’s take? Interesting to see how and where Augmented Reality might show up in healthcare, based on bleeding edge ideas in other fields like sports.
