We’ve developed the concept of ‘virtual interactive presence (VIP,’ that enables a provider to see a remote ‘task field’, insert hands/instruments into the task field and have them merged back into the local field in real time. This enables providers to see a task field (wound, medical equipment, medication, exam procedure, etc.) and provide real-time interaction, guidance and/or training. We’ve demonstrated VIP for surgical guidance using Google Glass. The mobile version of VIP is called Lime (live interactive merged environments) and is available in the iOS app store. Links provided below demonstrate the concept.

We have a proposal submitted to pilot Lime on iPAD and/or iPhone to enable providers to interact with patients for simple wound care, medical device operation or other needs in the immediate postop period. The potential for this interactive support is substantial, especially when used with wearable video devices.
