Streams is a mobile app that supports doctors and nurses to deliver faster and better care to patients. It is born in the DeepMind forges (the UCL spinout bought by Google in 2014 – now Google DeepMind, its artificial intelligence division) and now the team behind Streams will be joining Google. Streams has a clear vision: while collaborating with colleagues within Google, it wants to become an AI-powered assistant for nurses and doctors everywhere, using Google’s scale and experience in building billion-user products.

This mobile app has been designed to avoid “the failure to rescue” situation (that has been defined as the inability to prevent death after the development of a complication). Collecting personal data (blood test analysis, for instance). Streams is able to detect if there is a sudden change in the patient’s conditions. Thus, it sends an alert to the right doctor with a range of information to support them in making a diagnosis. Furthermore, Streams allow the visualization of vital signs (heart rate-blood pressure) and to record this data into the app.
Google is aiming high with this acquisition and the arrival of Dr. David Feinberg: the health market is the goal; a challenge played by giants such as Amazon and Apple (we have recently discussed the new i-watch ECG function). Real life data and AI are joining forces to change the health journey and health outcomes, providing new possibilities to improve patients’ quality of life.
