iRobot, InTouch Health team for hospital use

Bedford, Mass.-based iRobot recently partnered with California-based telehealth company InTouch Health to create robot-controlled telehealth technology for hospital use. Or is it telehealth-enabled robots for hospitals? The companies put out a combined press release last week about their intention to work together, and were clear that they want to combine robotic and telehealth technologies for hospital use. When asked for specifics about the partnership, though, they failed to elaborate any further. It'll be interesting to see which direction their R&D eventually takes them. Article
