At the IGovernment IPv6 conference I can't tell you how excited I was to see Steven Pirzchalski of the US Department of Veteran Affairs show pictures of IPv6 enabled products which were not servers - they were actual hospital equipment using IPv6 for connectivity and tracking. Who would have thought?! Well, I'm glad someone is thinking about how to take IPv6 out of the realm of the black box and into the world of useful applications.
That is exactly what Steven and I discuss here - how using IPv6 allows for services to be given to veterans, in a way that brings higher quality of service to them and at less cost to the Department. Continuity between the healthcare services provide by veteran hospitals and the veterans themselves - the end to end point connectivity - is the value IPv6 brings to such applications as sleep disorder monitoring and care.
