Dynamics of care in society

Health Care & Technology

Dynamics of Care in Society


Objectives

OBJECTIVES

  • IDENTIFY THE VARIOUS METHODS OF TECHNOLOGY USED IN HEALTH CARE FACILITIES

  • COMPARE & CONTRAST THE POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES OF BIOMEDICAL TECHNOLOGY ON SOCIETY AND ON THE HEALTH CARE SYSTEM

  • DIFFERENTIATE AMONG SOME OF THE KEY TECHNICAL, ECONOMIC, SOCIAL, MORAL & POLITICAL ISSUES ASSOCIATED WITH BIOTECHNOLOGIES


Dynamics of care in society

What is Medical Technology?

  • The practical application (everyday use) of the scientific knowledge produced by biomedical research

CONSIDERATIONS OF TECHNOLOGY IN HEALTH CARE

  • COST

  • SAFETY

  • BENEFITS VS. BURDENS

  • AVAILABILITY & ACCESS


Benefits

BENEFITS

  • prevent or delay the onset of serious disease

  • provide a better diagnosis

  • make faster and more complete cures possible

  • increase safety of medical treatment

  • minimize undesirable side effects

  • promote faster recoveries from surgery

  • increase life expectancy

  • improve quality of life


Burdens

BURDENS

  • new technology usually increases both labor and capital costs

    • side-effects or harm from the use of technology

    • emphasis on specialty care over primary care & preventive services

  • critically ill patients are put on life support with limited decision-making abilities and little hope of full recovery

    • the confidentiality of patient information


Medical technology includes

Medical technology includes:

  • Sophisticated machines PET scanners, implantable defibrillators

  • High tech procedures angioplasty, joint replacements

  • Pharmaceuticals & Biologics (a medicinal preparation made from living organisms and their products) serums, vaccines, antibiotics…


Dynamics of care in society

  • Genetic and molecular advances

  • IT (Informational Technology)medical records

  • internet

  • telemedicine

  • Disease management: advances

    • Diabetes (insulin pumps)

    • Heart Disease (procedures such as coronary artery bypass graft)

    • End-Stage Renal Disease (Kidney Transplants)

    • HIV-AIDS (new medications)

    TYPES OF TECHNOLOGY IN HEALTH CARE


    1 informational technology

    1. INFORMATIONAL TECHNOLOGY

    • Managing patient care management

    • Quality improvement

    • Cost containment

    Think about how the internet has allowed patients to be more active participants in their own health care!


    Dynamics of care in society

    HEALTH IT

    1. Accurate and complete information about a patient's health.2. The ability to better coordinate the care they give.3. A way to securely share information with patients and their family. 4. Information to help doctors diagnose health problems sooner, reduce medical errors, and provide safer care at lower costs.


    Dynamics of care in society

    • Ex: Telemedicine - consultation among physicians at a distance, Electronic medical records…Informational Access through:

    • Types of Computers

    • Desktop

    • Laptop

    • Tablet

    • Personal digital assistant (PDA)

    • Smart phone


    Dynamics of care in society

    • Electronic Medical Records


    2 diagnostic monitoring technology

    2. DIAGNOSTIC & MONITORING TECHNOLOGY

    • To identify or diagnose illness or injury

    • To monitor or measure progress

    • To assist in treatment planning


    Dynamics of care in society

    EKG


    Dynamics of care in society

    X-RAY

    • X-RAYaka (radiograph) is a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions.


    Dynamics of care in society

    • CT scans of internal organs, bones, soft tissue and blood vessels provide greater clarity and reveal more details than regular x-ray exams. CT scans use x-ray & sophisticated computers to produce multiple images of the inside of the body.

    CT Scan


    Dynamics of care in society

    MRI

    MRI


    Dynamics of care in society

    Fetal profile 1st trimester

    Ultrasound

    • Ultrasound imaging, aka sonography, involves exposing part of the body to high-frequency sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body.


    3 life support technology

    3. LIFE SUPPORT TECHNOLOGY

    • Used to maintain a patient's bodily function

    Oxygen

    4 genetic technology

    4. GENETIC TECHNOLOGY

    • Uses the power of the genetic code to treat human disease


    Dynamics of care in society

    Gene therapy

    Gene therapy


    Dynamics of care in society

    Stem cells


    Dynamics of care in society

    Cloning


    5 therapeutic technology

    5. THERAPEUTIC TECHNOLOGY

    • Uses technological procedures & equipment for disease treatment and rehabilitation


    Dynamics of care in society

    Robotic surgery is a technique in which a surgeon performs surgery using a computer that remotely controls very small instruments attached to a robot.
