Google Glass healthcare startup raises $8.4M

Wearable Intelligence, a startup designed to modify Google Glass for use in several industries, including healthcare, has raised $8.4 million in new venture capital funding, according to a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing.

Wearable Intelligence's HIPAA-compliant products allow clinicians to access procedural checklists or patient information, consult with or supervise other providers or receive context-appropriate alerts or notifications, all hands-free. The company is fueling Boston-based Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center's foray into hands-free EHR access using Google Glass.

The most recent funding round was led by Lightspeed Venture Partners, according to a report in Fortune.
