Technology: A Boom or Distraction

According to the reports, it has been unveiled that the experts in the medical field are unable to acknowledge the use of these gadgets like computers, smartphones and iPads. They are unable to decide whether these are useful or a mere device for distraction.

To overcome this hurdle, the Georgetown University, Stanford, has put forth a training program for the medical students. Under this program, the students will be allowed to carry their gadgets along with them while examining a patient.

During the course, it will be noticed that how far the medical students will be able to avoid their phones and concentrate on the patient. The University has issued a few guidelines that lay emphasis on the point that the main priority of the doctor and student should be to check their patient, and hence, put away the gadget when the need is not urgent. Moreover, they are not even allowed to use internet.

Also, in case they are not abiding by the rules and committing mistakes, they will be informed of that at every point where they go wrong. The program is expected to be a part of the training this summer, helping the students and even doctors balance their lives between their gadgets and patient. The program has been specifically implemented to achieve this aim.

Moreover, it is being expected that the new e-health records are going to be quite beneficial in such cases as, it will prevent the doctors from doing mistakes. Even if they do commit, the system would warn them and in case, they misbehave with the patient or don’t attend them carefully, the patient can use the system.
