Patients happy with robo-doc

to their physician, while 76 percent believed having the robot available would permit physicians to provide more medical information. "Clearly, most patients were very comfortable with this new technology," Kavoussi says.

Billed as the world's first remote-presence robot by its manufacturer, InTouch Health Inc., the robotic system works something like a video game, complete with a joystick for moving it about. Looking at a computer terminal, the doctor directing the robot sees what the robot sees and hears what the robot hears. At the other end, patients can see and talk to the doctor's face displayed on a flat screen that sits on the robot's "shoulders." The system is connected to the Internet via broadband and a wireless network.

Dr. Kavoussi owns InTouch Health, Inc. stock, which is subject to certain restrictions under University policy. Dr. Kavoussi is a paid member of the InTouch Health, Inc. Scientific Advisory Board. The terms of this arrangement are being managed by the Johns Hopkins University in accordance with its conflict of interest policies.
