OpticSurg Inc. has released an augmented reality telecollaboration system, Vision Beyond, to connect frontline health care workers with consulting clinicians in real time.
A provider working in person with a patient can share their first-person perspective through the Vision Beyond software platform using off-the-shelf augmented reality smart glasses, which beam what they’re seeing to web-enabled devices like computers, tablets and smartphones.
The securely encrypted, HIPAA-compliant system lets remote clinicians provide audio and visual direction, broadcasting live voice calls and displaying a digital interface and visuals through the glasses to aid the on-site provider. The clinician, for example, could explain to the on-site provider what they’re seeing and even draw illustrations that are superimposed in the glasses-wearer’s field of vision.
