I think this is a misunderstanding.
We are not talking about robotic remote surgery here, or anything
requiring low-latency feedback. "Telehealth" in this context refers to an
interview between a patient and a medic. For example, a patient might
hold up an injury and ask the doctor if it looks infected.
In fact, for health applications, I would make the unusual tradeoff of
sending the full resolution of the camera (640x480) at high quality, even
if this means that we can only achieve 1 or 2 fps.
