In medicine, telemetry is used to transmit data from a patient to monitoring equipment.  It is often used for patients who have suspected heart problems so they can be monitored while they go about their business in the hospital, yet still alert medical personnel when they might be in distress.  

It is also being developed for use in neurology to allow for an EEG to be performed while a patient is outside a lab.  It is usually combined with full time video monitoring to cut down on costs as constant monitoring of an EEG at point is prohibitively labor intensive.
