New technologies will finally help medical professionals focus more on the patient as a human being instead of spending time hunting down pertinent information. They will be able to do what they do best: provide care with expertise. In turn, patients will get the chance to be equal partners in this process taking matters into their own hands.
People usually think that technology and the human touch are incompatible. My mission is to prove them wrong.
The rapidly advancing changes to healthcare pose a serious threat to the human touch, the so-called art of medicine. This we cannot let happen. People have an innate propensity to interact with one another; therefore we need empathy and intimate words from our caregivers when we’re ill and vulnerable.
