They put a similar thing into one of the area ICU's (I think) in the Milwaukee area.  While it wasn't anywhere close to being as advanced as the system described here, I thought it was a good start.  The primary advantage is that the more experienced doctor could keep an eye on patients in other locations rather than having to transfer everybody to the "mother ship".
