Famous for its action-packed promo videos, Google Glass is now entering the hospital environment.

App developer John Rodley paid $1,500 to get an advanced version of the Google Glass just so he can explore its potential in the fast-paced hospital environment.

His new app is called ArrtGlass (the RRT in the name stands for Rapid Response Team) and it is a way to strengthen communication and collaboration between providers in a hospital.

The app is designed to “[coordinate] care with people who might be in other locations on a campus or inside a big building,” says Rodley.

Rodley provides a hypothetical situation in which a nurse is in the room with a patient. The nurse can contact the doctor via ArrtGlass and remotely provide him or her with a firsthand look at the patient.

Additionally, the app is built to display data such as vital signs, patient IDs and EKG information in an easy, accessible way.

Below is a sample display of patient data as seen on the ArrtGlass:
