The Right Tech Can Help Doctors Get Back Time With Patients

While AI and technology can simplify most processes, an overreliance on them can be counterproductive or even detrimental to patients. The best way to use technology is to integrate it with human skills and capabilities. Technology should be supplemental and not a replacement for the work of medical professionals. A variety of technological tools can reduce the amount of time physicians spend taking measurements and assessing a patient. For example, technology has replaced the clicker process used to count blood cells. This new method not only requires less time, but it is also more accurate. More importantly, a streamlined system can reduce or eliminate paperwork so that medical professionals can reduce the amount of time spent on completing repetitive administrative tasks. By reducing the time required to take basic vitals and fill out paperwork, physicians and nurses will have more time to talk to patients.
