It's 2 In The Morning, Where's Your Doctor?

It's 2 a.m. You wake up to discover your 3-year-old daughter has a high fever. What do you do?

Companies like Vidyo offer telehealth solutions that virtually connect health care providers with patients and other providers.

Today, your options are limited. You can call the pediatrician only to reach the answering service, which instructs you to dial 911 in case of an emergency. You can drive 20 minutes to the emergency department where you and your daughter could wait several hours. Or you can endure a sleepless night until you can reach a doctor the next morning.

But what if a pediatrician could come to your house and advise you what to do? It could happen today. But it wouldn’t be a traditional house call.
