I've been looking without success for info on the concept of the "virtual
office" in hospitals, healthcare in general, or any other service industry.
 By this, my patron DOESN'T mean telecommuting, telemedicine, the internet,
etc.  Instead, she has a vision of nutritional attendants and others who
counsel in-patients, who would spend almost all their time working in the
patients' rooms, who would have access to laptops or some other portable
devices, and who therefore would not need actual departmental office space.
 I've searched the usual healthcare databases, also looked around on the
internet, but have found nothing useful.  Can anyone set me on a better
track with this?
