Health care delivery is going to look tremendously different in the near future. More evidence, this time from Nintendo Japan:
It was inevitable we guess what with everyone plus your grandma using the Wii. Now Nintendo Japan has announced a new Wii “Check-Up” channel that acts as a health guidance system between you and health professionals.
Developed along with Hitachi, NEC, Panasonic and an unnamed health insurance company, the service will offer a communications space where users can get advice from health professionals using the Wii Fit and NEC’s mobile phone platform. Fit users have had success in the past using the system as a method for getting in shape, and now the check-up channel looks like a valuable enhancement.
