UofL Health Care physicians see patients anytime, anywhere

UofL Health Care is teaming with Owensboro Medical Health System (OMHS) to use the latest technology to provide care to patients in rural and outlying areas of Central and Western Kentucky.

The device, a 5-foot, 6-inch robot called the RP-7, works through remote control. It was invented and made by InTouch Health of Santa Barbara, Calif.

Within moments of a request for medical consultation, a doctor seated at a computer control station — at her home or office in Louisville, an airport terminal or anywhere in the world that has a wireless connection — can connect via the Internet to the RP-7 Robot located in the OMHS Emergency Room.

Dr. Larry Cook talks about this exciting technology.
