Single-payer cell phones

Here's what cell phones would look like today had the U. S. instituted single-payer cell phones in 1987:

These phones had:
no email,
no texting,
no web browser,
no media player,
no digital camera,
no digital video camera,
no calendar,
etc.
(And they really didn't fit in one's hip pocket!)

I wonder: what would healthcare technology look like today had the U. S. instituted single-payer healthcare in 1987?
