In partnership with MedTech Boston, the April Meetup will be focused on medical use cases for Google Glass.  We will learn the winners of the Google Glass Challenge and take part in a panel discussion with the thought leaders for wearables in medicine. About MedTech Boston

MedTech Boston, the premier online source for news about medical innovation in Boston, will announce the grand prize winners of the Google Glass Challenge, a competition launched to crowdsource ideas from clinicians about how Google’s wearable technology can be used to save lives and streamline healthcare.
Launched in collaboration with the White House Innovation Fellows and MIT Hacking Medicine, the MedTech Boston Google Glass Challenge invites medical professionals to submit their idea for the best use of Google Glass in a clinical setting. The semi-finalists submissions are currently being reviewed, and four grand prize winners will be announced at the event.

    It was a smash! I wish there was more time to Q&A, and that a brief on each team and their project was supplied after their presentations (online, of course.) I've had much interest in my short reports on the evening, but I neglected to take notes, and many of the clinical uses ran together in my mind. I look forward to the edited video of the evening.

      Hi Robert, I totally agree. We had too much content. We needed more time for Q&A and open discussion from the audience. This was a learning lesson for me--too much content and too little time.

    Everybody, thank you for making the evening such a success. We are waiting on clearance from Google to post the videos from the evening. Hopefully, you'll have it soon.
