Dream up new technology to provide health care anywhere

Audio report on a brainstorming session at Kaiser Permanente’s Innovative Learning Network conference. Worth the six-and-a-half minutes it will take you to listen to it.

Mention of the Nintendo Wii Fit in the report reminds me that we had a news round-up item on this in April: Wiimarkable: Can it evolve into a telehealth device? And I think the answer to that question is becoming clearer: it can, through the games box acting as a hub. It would also reduce the ‘boredom factor’ that must set in if you have to make and report ‘vital signs’ every day.
