For the unfortunate people who have chronic health issues, Intel is trying to ease their pain and better serve them, with the Health Guide PHS6000.  The new device bring a physician into your house remotely with a suite of software and video interactivity.  The PHS6000 also alows the physician to monitor current health and data about the patient to better diagnose and treat their patients.  It also allows for critical alerts when a serious issue presents itself.


"The Health Guide is a step forward in offering more personalized and effective management of chronic health conditions in the home," said Louis Burns, vice president and general manager of the Intel Digital Health Group.


The days of the physician in the home is coming full circle with new technologies arriving, giving the physicians omnipresense .  As long as we can maintain our privacy, this technology aims to make our health care costs and our health in general much better.
