That’s it! All gone. It was a lot of fun. And I especially like that I didn’t have to make any difficult decisions. Everyone with a good reason to get a Google Glass invite got an Google Glass invite. 12 in all!

Three more Google Glass Invites just went out, for a total of nine invites distributed so far. I have three remaining invites — first come, first serve (as long as you are a patient, health IT developer, or clinician, of course!).
PS Do you have any unused Glass invites? Want to distribute them to the same sort of deserving folks as I’ve been sending invites on to? Feel free to forward that email from Google to c h u c k w e b s t e r m d at g m a i l c o m.

That’s a total of nine (9) Google Glass invites! But wait! What’s this… I’ve just been handed three more Glass invites to give away to patients, clinicians, and health IT developers (if you’re in mhealth, I’d jump on this!). We’re getting down to the wire and I’ve got 6 more invites to hand out! That is a total of 12 (twelve!) Google Glass invites going to improve healthcare workflows! The invites expire on the 23rd and I have to submit them in batches of three. I think I have two ready to go out. So one more and that’s that batch, leaving just three, I say three, remaining, highly-sought after, Google Glass invites.

I have 14 days (from yesterday, so until December 23rd), to give away the ultimate wearable mobile technology: three Google Glass invites.
Tweet, add a comment, or (if bashful!) use my contact form to tell me how you think you can use Glass to improve provider and/or patient healthcare workflow.

Depending on what comes in over the transom, over the next couple weeks I may update this blog post in response to related questions, tweets, news, etc.
When you drop me a line, please start “If I had Glass, I’d improve healthcare workflow by …”
Thank you! Cheers! Good luck! Exciting!
PS You may be interested in my HIMSS Future Care and Information Week columns:
The following Information Week column is not about Glass per se. It’s about problems with health IT workflow, some of which might be helped by Glass.
@wareFLO If I had Glass, I’d improve healthcare workflow by empowering patients with type II diabetes to manage and improve lifestyle

If I had Glass, I’d improve healthcare workflow by checking vaccine records lookup weird rashes & download useful medical apps! @wareFLO

Plus here are some ideas that came in through my contact form:
“If I had Glass, I’d improve healthcare workflow by providing clinical decision support at the point of care - clinicians would be able to consult with experts in our crisis reponse teams through visual and audio advice, they would be able to divert further deterioration and coordinate care more effectively.”
“If I had the Google Glass, I’d use them to monitor physicians using EMRs in various settings such as CPOE, signing deficiencies etc to streamline the processes such as single sign-on, fewer clicks, more intuitive builds, better patient interaction/engagement etc.”
