Patient compliance is a perennial problem, costing billion of dollars in hospital readmissions, to cite one example. If more patients have a retrievable, visual and audio recording of his or her physician’s instructions in the office or discharge orders from an inpatient stay or emergency room visit, then adherence to a recommended follow-up course of action is greatly improved.

A video recording made using Google Glass, as shown in the video, is securely uploaded a patient’s EHR, then made available to the patient by logging in to his or her Personal Health Record (PHR) to view and listen to the video that recreates the visit.
