Santa Barbara, CA based InTouch Health has announced its new RP-Xpress telemedicine device. The size of the RP-Xpress and Wi-Fi connectivity makes the device more portable than any of the previous InTouch offerings which we have covered here at Medgadget. The company also announced plans to incorporate mobile broadband into the RP-Xpress, which will enable use of the device in non-hospital settings.
