Omron’s VitalSight is a blood pressure monitor for the age of telehealth

Must read

Before the pandemic, telehealth – seeing a doctor practically rather than in real life – was barely used by most patients in the United States. With both a strained healthcare system and fears of infection from in-person visits, that is now changing. Video or phone conversations with a doctor can solve basic problems. But the risk is that chronic diseases that benefit from routine check-ups – where the best healthcare is preventive, not reactive – will be left behind.
