Vuzix Corporation, a supplier of smart glasses and augmented reality technology and products, announced that seeCOLe, a health app, was awarded first place at the Cerner Corporation Code App Challenge.
seeCOLe (see Clinical data on Lens) is an AR health app used in collaboration with the Vuzix Blade that helps clinicians navigate and document patient electronic health records with hands-free voice commands. The app uses SMART on FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resource) to help clinicians navigate information while using smart glasses. While using seeCOLe, the clinician’s voice commands interact with the electronic health record, which then populates data from the patient’s chart and displays it on the Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses.
Once the data has been accessed, the seeCOLe application can be coached via voice or touch features to navigate through the patient’s records. This allows hands-free access to information while in the operating room, at bedside, or during a consultation.
“The overall form factor, wearability and performance of the Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses has drawn rave reviews from B2C customers, who see a tremendous opportunity to disrupt the existing market and build hands-free solutions around the Vuzix Blade platform,” said Paul Travers, Vuzix President and Chief Executive Officer. “Innovative health applications like seeCOLe, delivered through a see-through display on the Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses, can not only help clinicians provide improved care, but also increase their interaction with patients.”
Cerner Corporations’ health technologies helps connect people and information systems. At Cerner’s annual Cerner Health Conference, they bring together thousands of medical professionals. This year they hosted the code App Challenge, giving third-party developers and Cerner health systems the opportunity to create, develop, and pitch innovative solutions to improve health outcomes.
