The purpose of the project was testing the Google Glasses (GG) as a tool in clinical work situations at Odense University Hospital – and to examine whether it is technically possible to use the GG in collaboration with clinical systems for use in continuity of care and clarify whether GG, which can be activated hands-free, can be a useful tool in the clinic.

To department tested the GG-Technology

The Emergency Department (FAM) and Gynaecology Obstetrics D (Gyn. Obs. Div.) tested the GG-technology in practice. The GG has been used 23 times in the pilot project, 12 test without the involvement of patients and 11 with involvement of patients.

Project Manager Claus Duedal Pedersen from Odense University Hospital says:

– Google Glass is estimated to provide a quality boost and time savings. On Gynaecology Obstetrics the contributed clinicians identical, have announced that the CTG-curve shown on the GG was a useful and valuable supplement to the verbal description, and gave a more nuanced basis for making decision.
