St. Charles Medical Center has entered the wave of the future, with the new "telemedicine robot" named "Roda."

 

"Roda" will enable a doctor to examine a patient miles away, by using a visual and audio system similar to "Skype."

Nurse Emilie Bonnie tells our news partner, Newschannel 21, says a nurse needs to be with the patient while the doctor examines them: "We will warn them what they do and how they talk. People who have seen it out in the halls have been quite impressed as stopped to talk to it, because you actually see the face. You see the doctor's face, and then it's a little more personal."

 

With the new technology in place, doctors can even examine patients in rural areas, without them having to travel miles to see a doctor in person.
