Breakthroughs in technology has revolutionized the way healthcare is delivered. Modern technology changed the way structure and organization is seen in the medical field. Many methods allow technicians and physicians to examine the anatomy of a patient without invasive procedures. Advances in software and programs give health care professionals the chance to quickly diagnosis medical issues within patients. According to John Morrissey, “Eye-popping medical technology provides earlier diagnosis personalized treatments and a breathtaking range of other benefits for both patients and healthcare professionals.” With the innovation of diagnostic technology, advances in biomedical engineering, modern healthcare and its delivery methods are changing at increasing rates (Banova).
We have upgraded from the old handwritten flow sheet to Electronic Medical Records (EMR). This upgrade has given both nursing and physicians a more fluid way to keep track of vital signs, assessments, and I & O’s, especially when a patient is transferred to another floor it can continue to keep running totals.

Introduction ‘Staying Healthy’ is the new mantra of people young and old and there is an ever increasing pressure on Healthcare Organisations and Governments to provide quality health care to the community they serve. There is growing awareness among people with regards to healthy practices that help one to remain guarded against many of the diseases related to the modern life style. People now actively participate in ‘Self Care’ and this has led to attempts in moving point of care from the clinic/physician’s office to the patient’s home (Prabhu, Iyappan, Healthcare, & TCS).

Each year someone finds a new cure or a new way to look even closer to the body and its organs. Some tools a medical assistant uses in the field are hypodermic needles, mercury blood pressure units, and nebulizers.
