Augmedix grabs $3.2M for Google Glass-enabled medical records physician tool

With Augmedix's new $3.2 million in venture funding, the use of Google Glass for healthcare gets a major boost. The San Francisco startup uses Google Glass technology to help doctors more efficiently push information to most electronic health records systems and also verbally seek information from them, according to the company's website. The company is already generating revenue and working with select national health systems. DCM and Emergence Capital partners contributed to the round, which will also help support an expansion. Elsewhere, UCLA scientists are exploring the use of Google Glass (with an app) to enable instant, wireless diagnostic testing for HIV, types of cancer and other diseases. Release
