On July 23, Cornerstone Hospital Medical Center will host an "interactive reveal" of the InTouch RP-Vita, a state-of-the-art robot fondly known as Bentley. The event comes on the heels of the hospital's recent announcement of its plans to implement a Telemedicine Intensive Care Unit Program in partnership with iDoc Telehealth Solutions.
Said robot is one of the very few FDA-cleared Class II telemedicine technologies. Physicians can connect to InTouch RP-Vita via a PC, iPad or smartphone for clinical consults in less than a minute with access to supporting clinical documentation, patient data and medical imaging.

"Research from the American Hospital Association shows that ICU telehealth interventions can help to improve adherence to ICU best practices and reduce response times to alarms, as well as better survival rates," said Dr. Imoigele Aisiku. "There's tremendous potential in the field of telemedicine and we're excited to share the possibilities with the local community."
According to IDC, 70 percent of healthcare organizations worldwide will invest in consumer-facing mobile applications, wearables, remote health monitoring and virtual care by 2018.
