A Belgian company called BeWell is showing off WellPoint, a self-service kiosk that's designed for patients entering hospitals or clinics. The WellPoint is a touchscreen-enabled booth that operates as a first port of call for visitors, quickly checking your basic vitals before you see a medical professional.

According to BeWell, initial contact with a nurse where your blood pressure, pulse oximetry and weight are tested takes seven minutes. Then, of course, there are an additional few minutes when that nurse takes that data and enters it into the hospital's internal IT system. WellPoint, by comparison, can do it in three minutes and instantly update your medical records.
