Mamas on Bedrest: Using Technology to Improve Birth Outcomes

February 5th, 2014

It’s Video Wednesday!!! Today we’re talking about using technology to improve birth outcomes.

Advances in technology are making it easier and easier for medical professionals to connect with patients and eachother.  In this vlog I cite a study done via the University of Arkansas which shows that telemedicine, where one physician shares his case with other physicians via technology and receives input and expertise, is improving health outcomes. While most of us are on board with our smart phones, tablets, laptops and pc’s, the health care industry is lagging behind and just coming up to speed with electronic medical records, electronic communications with patients and now, telemedicine.  But even as the US healthcare system scampers to catch up, the benefits of technology in medicine are already glaringly apparent and will continue to shape how health care is delivered in this country.
