You’re Invited! We hope you‘ll join us for our next Empowered #patientchat discussion as we explore health technology. Health technology is defined by the World Health Organization as the “application of organized knowledge and skills in the form of devices, medicines, vaccines, procedures and systems developed to solve a health problem and improve quality of lives”.
Technology has transformed every aspect of our lives, and that is especially true in healthcare. It has revolutionized research and treatments, the structure and operations of the medical field, and the way healthcare is delivered. But how is all this health technology impacting patient’s lives, and is it really for the better?
Guiding our discussion will be the following Topic (T#:) Questions:
T1: Would you (or do you) use technology to help manage your health? Why or why not?
T2: If you don’t use health technology, why not? What are the barriers and challenges?
T3: Has technology changed healthcare to benefit patients? If yes, how so?
T4: What area of healthcare might positively benefit from health technology that isn’t already?
T5: What emerging health technology gives you hope for the future?
T6: If you had unlimited resources to make a major change in healthcare, what technology would you create?
