Political and legal influences have been known to be the drive behind the success of remote, or robotic surgery, as well as raising questions surrounding ethical issues. Both success and ethics can involve the skill and technique of the performing surgeon, the motive behind the surgery being suggested to the patient, and if such surgeries are really considered medical necessary so that an insurance company will actually pay for the procedure. These are all important things to consider, especially when trying to accept the idea that a robot will be the “hands” behind the cardiovascular surgery, and if the surgeon is behind the scenes. All patients would like to know and feel that they are in good hands, and that they don’t have to worry more so about the risks over the benefits. I believe that many of us would agree that it takes a knowledgeable and skilled surgeon, to not only perform a procedure, but use robotic assistance to do it.
In today's world, Technology plays a vital role in every industry. In the medical field, scientists are inventing different kinds of machines to get accurate anatomical images. They strive to improve methods that will provide sharper anatomical images and more detailed functional information in order to improve diagnostic tests and procedures. Due to these kinds of progress many tests that were previously conducted in the hospital are now performed in at physician's office. These days, it’s not surprising to witness a person being pushed into a large donut-shaped ring like machines for a test.
The completion of a SWOT analysis of Aetna revealed that the company has several strength that will help usher the company into their next phase. Aetna has a strong position in the US healthcare market and has great control over the company’s benefits and expenses and as a resulting in improved profitability. The company also has a wide and deep product portfolio and is attracting larger clients. Another advantage of Aetna is that their cost and quality focus with investments in health care technology. Although the company has several strengths it also has its weaknesses, such as low contribution of large case pension segments and overdependence on the US market.
In Modern world, technology has become a necessary staple of everyday life, and many people cannot remember a time when internet, smart phones, and computers were not standard equipment in every households. Some admit that technology permeates every field of human life, and humanity cannot escape the strong affect of technology. Although there is much argument about how the impact of technology is good or bad, it is undeniable that technology has made the world a better place to live and holds great potential for improving the lives of humans. First of all, especially in the field of medicine, new discoveries and technologies have made it possible to heal and prevent many illnesses, and have increased the average life of human being by many years. For example, the discoveries of endoscopic and organ surgery, of antibiotics and vaccines were major steps that have enormously improved the quality of people’s lives.
Robots:Convenience or Problem Have you ever paid attention to the craze of robots? If you think about this issue, you will see that popularity and high rate use of robots are becoming widespread significantly in our lives.Anyway, that the first robot was invented and programmed led to a new aspect enabling us to many innovations and conveniences.Then,robots ,which are one of the most important technological enhancements in the last century, have started to enter and affect our daily lives progressively.Although, enhancements in robots technology enable us to ease our lives in many respects,using robots in workplace may lead to three main problems. The first problem is the increase in unemployment rate.The first underlying reason of that is the employer’s choice.That is ,the employer prefers robots to people because, robots do not have any muscles,bones,etc.That is,they can work for long hours without getting tired.In contrast to robots,when people work under difficult conditions they become tired easily.For example,unlike the brain of people,brains of robots can work until run out of steam.Another reason for increase in unemployment is that robots can work under extremely difficult conditions at which people can not work.For example,they can dive deeper than people.For instance,almost entire petroleum exploration works are done by undersea robots.In these works,robots are sent to ocean’s bottom at which there is almost no oxgyen.Another extreme difficult condition is rescue operations after terrible earthquakes.In these conditions, robots take on many tasks which are essential and vital for these operations .For example, mini robots are sent to fully or partially callopsed buildings to investigate whether there are people living.Unlike robots,people can not join these rescue operations because, partially callopsed buildings are so dangerous
For example, in factories, more effective machinery can help increase the manufacture of a particular good. Modern technology has helped contribute to the ease of carrying out tasks. Modern technology is prevalent all around us and is highly accessible to people who may need them to carry out routinely tasks. These help to cut down the time needed
I know there are many prototypes of these human like robots, but I am talking about when they actually take the street, and people start to rely on these robotic mechanisms. In this essay I will explain my rationale behind my prediction, and explain some societal problems that will arise from this future technology. I feel like it won’t be long until we see these chunks of metal walking the streets with us, and communicating on an intellectual level with humans. My reasoning behind this is because taking this Comm 297T course I have seen how technology has been growing rapidly every year. Just this idea that we want a technology that will make our lives so much easier and time saving.
In the 1960s there was a struggle for medical facilities to recoup their revenue from patients, now many doctors are compensated by pay for performance. Computer systems have evolved from being centralized to then being shared. With the introduction of the World Wide Web in the 1990s, healthcare facilities have the ability to communicate globally. (Wager, Lee, & Glaser, 2009) Technology is, and will always be, forever changing and improving. The challenge health information systems face are finding a unified system to work in all healthcare aspects and all healthcare facilities nationwide (and possibly globally) and keeping up with technology.
With the help of technology, scientists have looked for ways to advance medical treatment as well. Technology has helped us increase the life expectancy of the average person. With the help of technological advances, medicine and treatments are helping the average life span for a human increase. Also, painless needles have been invented to prevent the feeling of pain as stated on foxnews.com. With the help of the internet, scientists are able to do research on specific diseases and find new cures as well.
The use of technology today has made people think harder to encourage them to create other technology that will benefit us in the future for survival, employment, education, health, etc, the technology improved quality of life of people, have improved health care, transplants, etc. Things could not previously are now possible thanks to Medical Technology. The Technology could be the best thing that ever happened to us. It's possible that the future generation might depend on technology for survival because parent's today doesn't want their kids to go through what they went through in life. So I think that technology makes like easier.
