We've also been involved in some products around EICU, basically allowing one physician to monitor multiple ICUs in different physical locations. While there may be another physician in the ICU to have somebody on the outside, maybe with a little bit a higher level of intensive care expertise, allows them to monitor what's happening et cetera, and I think there's a lot of power in that, I mean people have traditionally thought about telemedicine sort of for the rural environment, I think that's true and that will continue, but I think we'll see other environments, in-patient environments, nursing home environments, other situations where you want to be able to bring the information back to some central location or it's more efficient at least to bring it back to some central location.
