Kaiser Has a Doc in a Box

A Kaiser Permanente pilot project in San Diego offers employees at the county’s main operations center an on-site “doc in a box” medical clinic called the HealthSpot Station. The HealthSpot kiosk is a telemedicine clinic that allows doctors to remotely diagnose a range of medical conditions using two-way videoconference technology. Since November 2013, more than 500 Kaiser members employed at the operations center have visited the HealthSpot Station.
