doctorAccenture and Royal Philips have partnered to create a system for doctors to access medical information remotely via Google‘s wearable Glass device.

The product uses a Philips patient monitoring technology and illustrates how a physician can track vital signs and engage in surgical procedures at the same time, Accenture and Philips said in a joint statement.

“It’s a first step in researching how existing technologies can be applied to improve the quality of life of patients,” said Michael Mancuso, Philips Healthcare CEO of patient care and clinical informatics.

“This exciting work highlights the potential of digital technologies to transform the way we work and live and we’re pleased to have collaborated with Philips to help bring this vision to life,” said Paul Daugherty, Accenture chief technology officer.

Researchers from both companies are looking at other potential applications of Google Glass in healthcare settings.

They aim to use the head-mounted display to access a medical safety checklist, record surgeries for training purposes and conduct live video conferences among healthcare providers.
