Computers are vital in the field of medicine. Think about it: We all have a guilty pleasure of being a hypochondriac from time to time, self diagnosing ourselves on websites such as Netdoctor. If these websites can have such a comprehensive databases of illnesses and other medical complaints, just imagine the opportunities your doctor will have when they are presented with unusual symptoms that don’t seem to match together. They will be able to type in what you tell them and use search results in order to make an appropriate match. With recommended medicines and all of the recommended courses of treatment that have been tried in the past, you will also be able to ensure that you are getting appropriate care.

Useful for arranging prescriptions, computers are also vital in medicine because they allow information about our medical histories to be stored securely. There used to be a scenario where paper records could be destroyed all too easily. After all, what happens if a doctor accidentally spills tea all over his documents and the only copy of your records? This problem isn’t prevalent through computers, where a series of backups can be arranged that outline every single medical complaint you’ve ever had. This data can even stretch internationally should you be admitted into a medical centre while on holiday.

There are plenty more ways that computing technology will alter the medicine landscape, and this is all just the tip of the iceberg. Thanks to the Internet, the advances we can make in treating and curing illnesses have multiplied.
