Google Glass Gives Remote Doctors A First-Hand View Of Patients’ Cases
Beam is an app that allows healthcare providers to live stream first-person video with a remote specialist.
Beam is a Google Glass app that lets healthcare providers share text, images, video, and location with others in the field. It also allows them to consult in real-time with specialists who are in a remote location by streaming first-person video feed.
Beam was developed by Noor Siddiqui and her sister Gina, a former med student at the University of Pennsylvania. Noor put her college education on hold for a Thiel Fellowship in 2012. They founded Remedy to work full-time on creating platforms that can help doctors collaborate using wearable devices, especially Google Glass.
