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.
