RoboDoc Reboot


I have been using the RoboDoc line for years.  Hey, it’s an old movie and it was easy on the tongue when you said, “They are making us into RoboDocs”.  They being administrators.  The truth is that if they could use robots then we would be replaced in a second. Anyway, when I saw this article in Entrepreneur magazine, I started laughing.   A company called Augmedix, formed by a former medical student, is trying get doctors to use Google Glasses in order to push information to him or her while in the exam right room.  I sh%t you not!  Their website describes this has a way to “rehumanize health care”.  Another example of trying to own the language in order to win the argument.  So there you have it.  They truly have created a RoboDoc.
