AbstractThis paper discusses the impact of medical technology on health care in light of the fact that doctors are becoming more reliant on technology for obtaining patient information, making diagnoses and in carrying out treatments. Evidence has shown that technology can negatively affect doctor-patient communications, physical examination skills, and development of clinical knowledge. We propose three possible approaches to medical education and professional development to assist human doctors in acquiring a better understanding of the relative role of technology. The approaches include providing undergraduate and professional development training on using medical technology, helping students recognize the importance of clinical evidence, and helping doctors establish autonomy while interfacing with medical technology.
