From helping Doctors in China to manage the Covid19 outbreak of 2020 through to supporting Paramedics in the field, telemedicine is playing an increaasingly important role in healthcare. For example in Norway, Paramedics are increasingly kitted out with Assisted Reality headsets to help them deliver better "on-site" care to patients.

Here's a case study from the Norwegian Ambulance Service.
In China, during the peak of the Covid19 outbreak, RealWear headsets were worn by Junior Doctors in "isolation areas" enabled real-time video communication with Senior Experts (Consultants) in "safer" areas. This provided a safer and more effective way for Senior Experts to do "patient rounds" whilst also being more accessible to more Junior Doctors. Another Covid19 application includes triage support to Nurses by automatically recording patient details as they entered the hospital.
- No contact
- No paperwork - all data ready passed onto medical systems
- A simple step-by-step guided procedure
"one doctor or nurse wears the HMT-1 [Headset], checking the patient’s health and condition inside the isolated zone or infected zone, while the other doctors will play as a mentor role in the clean zone. By doing this, they can check and talk with the patient via RealWear’s hands-free system. Of course, this will reduce exposure to cross infection and cut down on the depletion of protective gear and equipment."
