The Future of Medicine is Technology

med tech

Most people are familiar with the phrase “An apple a day keeps the doctor away."

This phrase first appeared in the mid 1800s, originating in Wales with the following phraseology “Eat an apple on going to bed, and you’ll keep the doctor from earning his bread”. In the future, the phrase may change yet again to “Apple replaces Doctors.”

In this last example, Apple is not the fruit variety, but the computer company. Apple is moving into the health market by utilizing data collected from Apple Watches to predict heart problems (more on that later). This is just one example of how technology is impacting the world of medicine today. Whether we are early adopters of technology or wary spectators, medicine and technology are becoming partners.

The most obvious example of technology interfacing with medicine is the Electronic Health Record (EHR).
