Teladoc’s U.S. board-certified doctors can resolve many of your medical issues, on-demand 24/7, via phone or online video consultations from wherever you happen to be. It’s healthcare on your terms – simple as that. Link

This is part of an on-going trend in automation and robotics. It comes down to this – everything that can be virtualized will be, anything that can’t be will be localized and customized. Sometimes the customization will favor high performance materials, others may favor inexpensive materials (whether by choice or due to adopting austerity policies).

Eventually even surgery won’t require that a Surgeon be in the same Hospital as the patient, he will be able to do the work remotely thousands of miles away.

However for this to be fully embraced the infrastructure will have to be secured and upgraded to guarantee no disruptions will occur.

Well look down Yonder Gabriel, put your feet on the
land and see

But Gabriel don't you blow your trumpet till you hear
from me

There ain't no grave can hold my body down
