Change in the Medical Industry and Personal Technology
Technology is changing rapidly, and medical patients are taking control of their own healthcare needs with their internet access. Medical knowledge is doubling every five years, and 1 in 3 American adults are going on to their computers or smartphones to diagnose their medical problems. Patients are even using social media such as Facebook and Twitter.
Patients are not the only ones using technology to their advantage: doctors are also becoming digital. They are using phone applications as medical tools to reach out to the world wide web of patients. The coming together of the medical and technology world will be a huge step for the future.
