How to Empower Clinicians to Help More People

Home health has created a need for efficient and quick communication between nurses in the field and clinicians at the healthcare organization’s facility. Google Glass can help.

Google Glass Enterprise Edition (Glass) has helped workers across industries — from healthcare to logistics and field services — do their jobs more efficiently by providing hands-free access to the information and tools they need to complete their work. Workers can use Glass to access checklists, view instructions or send inspection photos or videos, and enterprise customers have reported faster production times, improved quality and reduced costs after using Glass.

Glass is a head-mounted, connected device that runs on Android and that features a heads-up display, front-facing camera, two-way audio/video, touchpad, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB-C and powerful battery. Its purpose-built applications are developed by a network of solution partners and have delivered exceptional experiences in telehealth and patient care. For instance, Glass was used as part of a Chemo@Home program, which needed to recruit, onboard and train new nurses amid increased demand for at-home treatments. The new nurses used Glass to connect back to headquarters or other experts, and the solution helped the nurses increase the amount of treatment they were able to administer.

Metix, a Google Glass partner, has developed a video communications solution that seamlessly integrates Zoom services on Glass. It enables anyone with Zoom credentials to easily extend the service to the glass device, anywhere in the world. A remote field worker can be directly connected with their desktop colleagues and stream live audio and video. Conversely, the desktop worker can see and hear the field worker’s field of view, in real time!

Glass and Metix are empowering more hands to help more people, bringing the best of Zoom Video Communications Inc. in a hands-free way, giving remote and off-site workers — whether that’s healthcare professionals or maintenance teams — a way to talk, interact and collaborate with others in remote locations anywhere they need.

Metix on Glass, powered by Zoom, is available at CDW. The solution includes the Glass device, Metix license and frames, and can be deployed anywhere in just a few simple steps.
