Passive patients will become empowered participants.
The idea of "the future of medicine" often involves the discussion of innovations in technology that may or may not one day be introduced into the world of medical practice. This article, however, looks at how current technology will be integrated into the current medical system within the next 10 years in order to provide better health care to patients. It is difficult to comprehend that in today's day and age, patients are still taking medication incorrectly, or that some people are being admitted to hospital when it is quite possible for them to be treated remotely. The correct application of technology will mean a less cluttered and more accurate health care system leaving much less room for human error.
In 1998, Malaysia opened its first hospital based on the "paperless and filmless" concept. Two are now in operation, with more to follow. Telemedicine is now being used in some hospitals and is slated to be the technology to watch.
This article offers the perspective that despite the fact that great innovations in medical technology are presented to us on a regular basis, the implementation of these technologies into the current system can be a troublesome one. It often requires great economic resources not only for the training of the medical staff, but even to change their mindset or attitudes towards the technology in the first place.
Future medical technology is discussed including brain-computer interfaces, nano-robots, gene manipulation, robotic surgery, synthetic organs, organ cloning, individualized drugs, bionic body parts and cryogenic sleep.
Much of the suggestions made in this article may seem to some like a science fiction movie. The reality is that many of these "fictitious" technologies are being used in today's day and age, but in a less complex state. This article reaffirms that much of the future's technology will simply be an addition to the technology we have available to us in the present.
Future timeline, a timeline of humanity's future, based on current trends, long-term environmental changes, advances in technology such as Moore's Law, the latest medical advances, and the evolving geopolitical landscape.
One of the world’s top physicians, Dr. Eric Topol, has a prescription that could improve your family’s health and make medical care cheaper. The cardiologist claims that the key is the smartphone. Topol has become the foremost expert in the exploding field of wireless medicine. Dr. Nancy Snyderman reports.
The introduction of these technologies, in my view, is vital in allowing doctors to provide their patients with a more accurate and more efficient health care service. Having to wait days, and sometimes weeks, to obtain results to scans that may or may not resolve your health problem can be quite frustrating and counterproductive.
