There is no question that medical technology has come a long way in recent years. From diagnostic tools to treatments, medical technology has revolutionized the way we care for our health. However, there are still many neglected areas in medical technology that need attention.
One such area is medical records. Despite the fact that electronic medical records have been around for over a decade, many hospitals and clinics are still using paper records. This is not only inefficient, but it can also lead to errors. In a recent study, it was found that nearly one in four medical errors are due to incorrect or incomplete medical records.
Another area that needs attention is communication. With so many different members of the healthcare team, it is essential that everyone is on the same page. Unfortunately, communication breakdowns are all too common in healthcare. A recent study found that nearly 60% of medical errors are due to communication problems.
Finally, there is the issue of safety. Despite the fact that medical technology has made great strides in recent years, patient safety is still a major concern. In the United States alone, there are over 400,000 preventable deaths each year due to medical errors.
