Covid-19 pandemic accelerates innovation in hospitals

Also, for a time, physicians in training did not have access to classrooms and patients. For several hospitals, this disruption actually created innovation. For example, medical instructors can stream video to students outside the hospital with Smart Glasses from Vuzix. Healthcare providers can also provide real-time images of patients to physicians.
