re: IT Changes Doctor-Patient Relationship For Better: Topol
ItGs an exciting time for the healthcare industry. With these new technologies that contribute greatly to patient involvement in their healthcare, physicians will be able to focus more on patients that are greatly ill and really need to be monitored by qualified professionals. Patient involvement is also a key component of healthcare IT and will play a major role if it is to be successful. With genome sequencing becoming more cost effective and available to more patients in the near future, we can also tailor medications and plans to individual needs, therefore reducing risk and increasing patient health nationwide.
