Although many of us aren't happy about the decision to remove video hangouts, it isn't the worst news. Glass will still be able to communicate via video calls using third party apps. It just won't be as easy as it has been.

Bummer.

Not that it will make a difference, but add your opinion to this poll ... are you upset video hangouts are being removed from Glass?

Rather than dismiss the Internet as a healthcare resource, why aren't these physicians taking advantage of information access by referring patients to and sharing reliable online resources? The more these good sites get shared by reputable people (like doctors) the higher they will climb in search engines.

+Mayo Clinic and +Cleveland Clinic are good first steps. I also recommend creating  a list of resources (on your website) from your own trusted resources and peers. As your library grows, your patients will learn to visit there before taking sime to search on their own.

So Glass XE16 removes video hangouts ... This will be a real show stopper for healthcare Glass. How do you feel about it? Glass Almanac is taking a poll.

That is for MDs' protection +Kevin Wheat so there is no question doctors are licensed in the state they are serving. You have the option to not check the HIPAA option as long as you're not planning to handle any protected patient data.

Dear +Google Glass ... why?
 
My email to Google, earlier today, after learning that the new update removes the video call feature from Glass:

The removal of video feature is really a deadly blow for Glass in Medicine!
The use in Med Ed, Telemedicine, Tele-mentoring, Tele-consulting is Now NOT possible!
I only hope that this is restored in the next update.
There's a very active, important, growing professional community that has been working around Glass in Healthcare, who depends on this particular characteristic of Glass.
Please reconsider the decision of taking video away, or at least allow some user subgroups to choose whether to update.
Folks like me and several others, from Maine and Boston to San Francisco must have the video option to be able to make Glass an important tool in Healthcare and Medical Education.
Please.

Respectfully.

Well stated Dr. Grossman.  GLASS has great potential as a tool, not just in medicine, but in other areas as well.  Without video calls, i think development into next steps is stymied for now.  In my opinion, GLASS is easier for the public to accept in the workplace than as a social medial tool, and the video chat component is the most valuable feature for the workplace.

Story
Tagline
Glass Community Leader & Healthcare Social Media Evangelist
Introduction
I love disruptive technology, innovation, and creative thinking. My passion is applying social technologies to Health Care. 

I am the founder of Healthcare Talk, Healthcare Glass Explorers, and Tennessee Glass Explorers communities on Google+. I also hold broadcast Health Care Hangouts where I facilitate discussions with healthcare professionals to collect their insights, explore new social approaches, and give the healthcare community a larger social presence. I believe opening channels of communication can lead to better results ... in healthcare, or in anything!

I specialize in building communities that serve both patients and healthcare providers. I also introduce a variety of social tools and technology to help healthcare organizations work smarter, improve patient satisfaction, and attract new patients. I am especially knowledgeable in Google+ and make a conscious effort to keep a pulse on where social is headed rather than where it has been.

I am also a published author about Twitter, a curious explorer or Pinterest, a harsh critic of Facebook, a participant on Quora, a leverager of LinkedIn, and a big fan of Google+!

I don't believe anything is boring. In fact, I can have fun doing just about anything!

Oh yeah... I have a degree in creative writing with a minor in art. With one class left to complete a dual major, my professor drew on my picture with a green sketching pencil. I refused to take another class from him, and graduated early instead. That was in 1985 and I haven't forgiven him yet. lol

Circles suggestions: glass explorers, healthcare marketing, social media, healthcare innovation, business speakers, connectors
Bragging rights
I was diagnosed with prosopagnosia (face blindness) by Dr. Oliver Sacks. Because I feel handicapped trying to recognize familiar faces in a crowd, I often change my own appearance to throw people off. The rest of the time, I treat everyone like a close friend, because they might be.
