I have done several posts on the Robo Docs and here’s one from CNN showing the military using them as well for remote support and healthcare. This hospital in Orange County was accredited to handle stroke victims due to their use of the Robotic Doctor.
Robots at Work in Orange County Hospitals – California
“This robot is not new to the blog here as I have done several posts about how it works, and Fountain Valley Regional hospital a Tenet facility, where I have a few surgeries done in the past, now has one to make rounds. The robot is leased at $6500.00 a month. Also by adding the robot, the hospital was able to to apply for certification as a specialized stroke center by the Joint Commission, approval is still pending. The robot comes complete with a stethoscope and can print out orders on paper that runs like a cash register tape.”
This one appears to have a new outfit though, one resembling a military uniform. When a doctor is not there physically, the robots can be the next best thing, they have stethoscopes and great cameras too. See the related reading below for more stories about the Robo Doc. They have been around UCLA too for a few years now as well. BD
