My experience of seeing doctors is vague and somewhat negative, due to me being a typical bloke who services his car more often than he visits his doctor. I recently had no choice, though, and booked an appointment through the antiquated phone-booking process. The appointment was duly scheduled (after trading a few calls--it’s easier to get tea with the queen!). The day arrived, and I ventured into my local clinic to seek out a sage-like doctor to alleviate me of my man-flu symptoms.
I entered the clinic expecting to give my key ID details to the receptionist, and then take one of the multi-colored numbered disks from the wall (representing each doctor and where you were in the queue) and wait my turn. But to my surprise, the disks had very recently been replaced by several devices. I was ask to tap details into the digital display touch-screen by the entrance. The display was running Windows Embedded with an ISV app that linked my name and doctor directly to another Windows Embedded digital display screen in the waiting room. Not quite an intelligent system, but on its way to being one.
