Patients Take Back Control with Technology

Via Scoop.ithealthcare technology

Technology can be a wonderful thing. It can also be a cold and dehumanizing thing.

 

Unfortunately, in medicine, that often happens with one and the same device.

 

The very instruments that diagnose and treat us can often make us feel more like test subjects than patients receiving care. Anyone who’s ever had an MRI knows the device that can find what’s ailing us is also oppressively big and noisy. Woe to you if you’re claustrophobic.

 

But technology is now being applied in the interests of healing the entire patient—mind, body, and soul.

It’s happening in a big way, perhaps appropriately, next door to Hollywood, where the entertainment industry cranks out one technology-fueled blockbuster after another.
