Hey Andy: how high is the resolution on the in-room camera? Is the color accurate; I mean, can you see if people look "sick" with this rig? seems old-fashioned, I know, but, I'm a dinosaur, after all...

the video quality is impressive.
i can zoom in on people outside the room, perhaps 40 feet and read their ID badges perfectly.

ICU medicine is a great telemedicine application, since, unlike general medicine or surgery, much of the ICU data required to mange the ICU patient is generated electronically. What was missing was the "visual" of the patient. Seeing the patient along side the electronic clinical data takes everything to the next level.

Hi Andy, Have any of you had any experience with the InTouch Robot in the critical care setting?

Has anyone thought about using telemedicine technology to mentor IMGs who are planning a permanent move to the west? Mentors in the receiving country can begin with a prospective IMG to orient him/her to a new healthcare environment? An thoughts?
