Many groups see google glass as an opportunity to provide the clinician an additional channel to review patient information, however, a greater benefit is adding a remote physician into the room with the patient. It might be the new telemedicine disrupter.

This might be a better way for multiple clinicians to interact with the patient. Trying to maneuver around robots, carts, and cameras can be “disruptive” to practicing medicine.
