GlobalMedia of Scottsdale, Arizona, has an interesting position in the telemedicine market. It has expertise in visual conferencing but also produces devices and software that make it easy to incorporate telemedicine: items such as a cart system (featured in this general zdnet item on telemedicine) but, most interestingly, the small, multifunction camera ‘TotalExam’ (FCC and CE marks December 2009). See a YouTube video and read more in an Arizona Republic article. How long, one wonders, before such technology becomes part of a visiting kit for nurses?
