The development of new technology is transforming the way in which pharmacutical companies educate and inform their customers about the benefits and risks of new therapies, particularly in the way that supporting clinical and economic data is presented, a new report from the IMS Institute for Healthcare Information. This technology can inform consumers about side-effects and help them better understand the product. This is vital for the medical community to have a better understanding of the products.

New research development has lead researchers to lead to new ways to discover side effects without animal testing. They are using bacteria feilds and robots to allow for new testing and they have shown tremendous results. This technology may lead to a new path in the future for medical testing. This drug can be sensed on a radar that can track its location through the body and can be used without animal testing.
Brendan Reddy's comment, March 26, 2014 8:42 AM
This device can led to new cell testing by artificially growing them instead of using animal testing. This can also be used to grow the bacteria or viruses that cause the disease instead of implanting the disease in the animal. This method can save animal lives and make more efficient vaccines.

When surgeons leave sponges or surgical objects in patients the results can be deadly. New technology allows doctors to keep track of all the sponges by bar code. These bar codes scan in a computer and allow the surgeons to keep track of the sponges. This new system will ensure that surgeons keep the patient safe and that no foreign objects will enter his or her body.

According to this website over 100 cases were reported last year when sponges or other objects were left in patients. These objects can block arteries and cause organ failure. Doctors are trying to improve patient health and this is a major step.

Kevin Fu is an electrical engineer and he is trying to improve the consistency with pace makers and other devices that use electricity to function. His team at the University of Michigan are developing ways to use less energy to make the devices last longer and become more effiecent. This could allow doctors to be able to operate less and maek the improvements better for the patients.
