Pristine, which harnesses Google Glass as a more manageable, hands-free approach to telemedicine as an educational tool, checklist for surgeons, consult service and medical device reps, has raised $5.4 million.

S3 Ventures led the oversubscribed Series A round, but other sources of investment included Healthfundr, Capital Factory and a syndicate of investors. The funding will be applied to support research and development, sales and marketing and operations teams.

University of California at Irvine Medical School adopted Pristine’s EyeSight videoconferencing app, which lets users stream the video to Windows, Mac and devices on Apple iOS and Android networks.

Pristine sees the opportunity for its technology to be applied to several aspects of medicine such as telewound, ambulances, emergency medicine and patient homes.

Update: This story was updated because Pristine doesn’t have a relationship with Wound Care Advantage “at this time” and UC Irvine is not using its CheckLists app
