As the doctor examines that patient, another person as of a new kind, named as medical scribe is watching the examination, transcribing everything he sees. This scribe is thousands of miles away in India, and he is viewing the office visit live through the pint-size, WiFi-connected camera attached to the doctor’s glasses.
“When was his last physical?” the doctor asks as he listens to the patient’s breathing and checks his reflexes. The Scribe nearly immediate answer pops up in a text bubble display in the right corner of the doctor’s field of vision. “Jan 3, 2017!”
