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 medtechboston.com 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.
