Institution of affiliation




Technologies have found applications in almost every sector, including the healthcare
sector. Healthcare technologies are used in the collection of data, analysis, and also storing the
data. The usage of the technologies promotes personalized care since the focus of the
medications is on the specific issue affecting the patient. Recording the healthcare data also
minimizes errors since the physicians, and other relevant healthcare workers are held
accountable. Therefore, patient-centered care has emerged because of healthcare technologies
and has promoted better healthcare outcomes among patients.
Health Care Technologies & Promoting Patient Empowerment
Patient empowerment refers to emerging situations where the citizens are being
encouraged to be active in managing their health increasingly. The emergence of healthcare
technologies has allowed patients to increase their involvement in managing their health.
Healthcare technologies have brought new ways of connecting patients and healthcare providers
and increasing information that patient’s access. Calvillo, Roman & Roa (2015) says that web
services like web pages, remote data access, and interactive portals have revolutionized patient
empowerment. Other technologies, such as social media, discussion forums, and blogs, have
empowered patients by providing information and enabling them to discover healthy living
Technologies and Reducing Medical Errors and Adverse Events
Medication errors have harmed millions of Americans, with thousands dying each year
due to medical errors. Pham et al. (2012) assert that about 98,000 Americans die annually
because of medical errors. These deaths are preventable with the correct usage of technologies as



prevention medication has become a priority in the recent past. One technology that has
minimized medical errors is bar-coding systems. Pham et al. (2012) say that the technology has
eliminated transcription errors and this has reduced cases of medical errors relate...
