HealthSpot Station Allows Doctors to Remotely Examine Patients

In Australia we have a shortage of doctors in rural locations. With HealthSpot Station, we may now have a solution. Like its name suggests, HealthSpot Station is essentially a pop up doctor’s clinic where patients can walk in to the station and be treated by a doctor via video conferencing. Where this differs from a simple in home Skype call is that the station has specially made, self-service medical diagnostic tools built-in that the doctor can ask the patient to operate.
