Abstract—This paper presents a design of medical helping robot and interaction between human and robot (HRI) in health care for robot called Telemedicine - a robotic system for remote diagnosis based on real-time videoconference and saved in electronic medical record. We would love to show our research to reach the design of the first prototype of Telemedicine system and some first successful experiment such as two-side medical teleconference for connecting between a doctor and a patient, helping an assistance provides drugs for patients, finally supporting doctor determines patient's condition with medical record and remote moving platform. Robot system has own network includes individual patient-doctor and assistant-doctor communicate channels, these channels is capability as well as separately. This robot can also automatically move to recharge dock to make sure battery always in the best condition.

Index Terms—Tele-health care, Telemedicine, HRI, elderly, electronic medical record, teleconference
