re: American Well: The Doctor Will See You Online
If I understood the press release correctly, people are gonna use the internet kiosks that are already out there.
I agree with the privacy curtain or whatever tho. For instance, the other day I used those machines that you find in Safeway, Albertson, etc to check your blood pressure, eye sight and what not. I feel embarrassed when the little avatar started to ask me questions. I left immediately.
Soon we're gonna see people in live video consultations on their smartphones everywhere. Actually, one of the first things you see on American Well's website is a banner with links to the app store and Google play.
Personally, I wouldn't mind doing in it my car. Hard to explain to the police for a woman if the doctor asks her to see her chest ;)
