Richard Kimball, Jr., CEO of HEXL and Fellow of the Distinguished Careers Institute at Stanford University, describes how technology has enabled the viability of widespread utilization of telemedicine platforms. The proliferation of internet-connected smart devices with high-definition cameras and microphones creates the type of network necessary for doctors to administer many types of treatments remotely.

The tools needed for the success of concierge telemedicine goes well-beyond just tablets, smartphones, and personal computers; the availability of technology-laden vital sign monitors like blood-glucose meters, blood pressure recorders, pulse detectors, and other such devices make it possible for patients to better participate in the scanning of important health markers. Physicians can benefit greatly from these additional data collection methods and from the better-informed participation of their clients.
