New Incubator Launches To Explore Google Glass in Healthcare

7-30-2013 10-58-55 PM

Qualcomm Life and Palomar Health are partnering to launch an incubator dedicated to bringing Google Glass apps to market. The incubator, named Glassomics, will be headquartered from Palomar Medical Center in San Diego.

"The goal of Glassomics is to explore the potential of wearable computing in medicine, specifically Google Glass. We are designing and building applications for Glass that empowers physicians with real-time access to information about their patients, such as laboratory results and genomic information."  – Orlando Portale, chief innovation officer at Palomar Health.

Glassomics has been structured to create spinoff businesses from Qualcomm and Palomar, harnessing technologies that Qualcomm owns. For example, the incubator will reportedly incorporate technology from the cloud-based Qualcomm 2net API, the Healthy Circles Orchestration data-sharing platform that Qualcomm recently acquired, and Qualcomm’s AllJoyn open-source software framework.

The incubator is partnering with Sparseware, a software engineering firm in San Diego that will be responsible for bringing new concepts together with Qualcomm’s existing technology to create spin-off Google Glass startups in healthcare.
