“Two-way wireless videoconferencing devices can be placed at the patient bedside for regular physician/patient interaction, complete with high-definition video transfer for accurate visual diagnosis. Wireless patient blood pressure, glucose level, weight, and/or bone density monitors may also be integrated into the solution. These devices provide treating physicians with regular insight into the patient’s condition by regularly relaying this data wirelessly to the doctor’s computer or mobile device… …4G telehealth solutions also help remove location barriers from the healthcare equation. With videoconferencing, a patient in a rural area with 4G coverage can receive a consultation from a world-renowned specialist without ever leaving their neighborhood or home”
