The Top Eight Ways Technology is Working for You

No. 1 – Video Connectivity

Interactive flat-screen monitors, available in all rooms, allow patients real-time access to family and friends. They also let caregivers consult with other members of the patient’s care team and show patients images such as X-raysCT scans, and MRIs to better understand their illness and treatments.

Surgeons have similar videoconferencing capabilities in the operating rooms, allowing real-time discussions with colleagues during surgery. Pathologists, for example, can view – onscreen – tissue samples extracted during surgery.
