So i've heard for quite some time that medicine is lagging behind other fields in terms of innovations and technology. Some could go as far back as a century ago. What are your thoughts on this? What can we do to change this?
what is medicine without technology? in most cases physicians rely on technology to make diagnoses - how else could you find an internal tumor or an aneurysm? technology also allows for more advanced treatments and surgeries. Whether the benefit from a particular technology outweighs the cost is a concern, but as long as the technology is legitimate and used appropriately, it will improve medicine.
computers will eventually take over the physician's roles. all that rote memorization could be easily stored into a database. clever algorithms like neural networks and genetic algorithms can map the symptoms to a diagnosis.
What companies that are selling and/or manufacturing emr's can i invest in? Which one is the best?
