Passive patients will become empowered participants.
dzenancelahmetovic's insight:

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.

Information Technology in Health Care-What the Future Holds

Information Technology in Health Care-What the Future Holds | The Future of Medicine | Scoop.it
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.
dzenancelahmetovic's insight:

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.

dzenancelahmetovic's insight:

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.

dzenancelahmetovic's insight:

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.
