3.0 Impact of computer applications in medical and healthcareIn a world that keep on developing and extending, we can’t deny the fact that involving medical and healthcare to the developing rundown of fields that apply computer is a very good yet reasonable plan for the society. As the technology keep on become more and more powerful, medical and healthcare area can take this as advantage and make full use of technology in their field. By involving the use of computer in these area, the slogan, “amazing technology , graceful care” can be achieved easily achieved by society especially doctors and nurses. With computer applications, medicine and healthcare area are able to improving health qualities in our society effectively.3.1 Storage of database Computer has a very useful function which is to store data base. Database can be store at some applications or software in the computer. Back to the days that doesn’t have modern technology like computer , ipad and tabs , patient’s health record were written on a piece of paper or in a card. As the technology become more advance, medical and healthcare field does not need to depend on those paper form record anymore.

We can’t deny the fact that the volume of medical records will increase as the number of population of a country increases. It seems impossible to make and keep medical records for millions through the paper-keeping system. At this time ,computer had become a very sufficient platform to record millions healthcare data. Apart from that , computer applications make the world more eco-friendly and less polluted as the paper usage for writing records. 3.2 Gaining patients’ acknowledgement With computer applications, patients are able to seize the condition of their health.

Computer applications in medical field may seem normal for most of us but have you ever thought that it plays a very important role in increasing the chance of recovery for billions life. Laser applications of computer enable patients to solve their problems in a less painful way.
