Say goodbye to hospital bedside doctors...
We are seeing implementation of interactive audio/video systems installed in patient rooms that are connected by a high bandwidth connection to a monitoring facility in another city that will be staffed with a doctor that is able to watch the streaming medical data from the patient - heart rate, blood pressure(s), oxygen saturation, heart data calculations, etc.
The doctor can pan the camera to talk to the patient/nurse and watch the bedside patient monitor, ventilators, etc.
Just another step closer until it is monitored from a certified Obamacare “doctor” out of Washington DC who can remotely pull the plug on grandma.
There is even talk about robotic surgery. You doc can be anywhere in the world controlling the robot. This way they don’t need as many docs on hand.
Just pray that the PC program does not freeze up at a critical point of your procedure.
