Main Question or Discussion Point

Interesting idea -- placing telemedicine kiosks in buisnesses to give quicker/easier access to health care for employees. I wonder if it will catch on...

(BTW, that's the NP on the video screen, not holding the ear imaging probe)

It would be nice, my previous employer was so big that we had our own fully equipped doctors office including x-rays on campus with nurses and a pharmacy. It was very convenient. And they would send nurse practitioners around to the offices regularly to do blood tests for cholesterol, blood sugar etc.. and give vaccinations. You could even bring family members to the doctor's office, but with an appointment, employees could just walk in.
