ALWAYS UP TO DATE
Technology has always had a huge impact on the quality of patient care and the quality of work of medical professionals. One thinks of new diagnostic methods, minimally invasive interventions and faster, painless recovery. There is enormous potential in information technology in many areas such as general digitization, telemedicine, surgical simulations, emergency alarm systems, tracking systems such as RFID (radio frequency ID), EHRs (electronic health records) or online appointment booking. Of course, the patient’s privacy must always be preserved.
