UC Davis Medical Center pilots a remote diagnostic robot called Rudy.

The robot allows doctors to remotly visit patients and interact with them. Controlled via a joystick the 5 feet tall robot moves around in the hospital. Voice of the doctor is transmitted through the robot. Apperantly such a robot could save cost. I say it can free up more time for docs to hit the golf course.
