Assuring the quality of Internet connectivity for healthcare 
applications is definitely an Internet Governance issue.

I remember many years ago talking to health authorities who wanted to 
use mobile phone SMS to tell where ambulances where to go (they call 
this activity "dispatching"). They became justifiably concerned when 
they couldn't find any QoS guarantees from the mobile phone operators 
about when those SMS might be delivered (you'd need "within a few 
seconds", probably; "within 4hrs" won't be much use).
