I can see this medical technology being used in a limited way for the emergency room. Less critical cases can be addressed by a telepresence robot, thereby alleviating the long wait time in emergency room. Great article Beth!

This is a very timely idea, given the way medical treatment is changing. More and more often, I'm seeing that many doctors have a physician's assistant who visits the patient and does a basic interview minutes before the doctor arrives. This concept seems to be a twist on the physician's assistant trend.

This is a great development. Given the number of patients doctors have to see in a day, this could help make better use of their time. Proper triage procedures would obviously be essential, however. This type of technology makes most sense for patients who aren't in any kind of immediate danger or who aren't critical vs. those with more pressing issues where an in-person examination is preferrable.

Love the integration with the iPad. That's bound to make the technology far more accessible to tech-adverse docs.
