Technology has changed the way healthcare services are provided in this day and age. New tools and ways of doing things have been introduced enabling doctors to be more efficient when doing surgery. Doctors do not even need to be in the same locations as the patient to do surgery or prescribe medication. Knowledge from all over the world can be accessed with the touch of a button this has improved the provision of medical services tremendously. This has benefited many people all over the world and made healthcare delivery easier (Lamba, 2011).
Some of the equipment that has been brought about by technology advancement include; 3D echocardiogram and CT reconstruction. These two have made surgery more efficient by improving imaging capabilities which enable surgeons to operate without hindrances on the human body (Sabik, MD, 2014). Healthcare services have improved too, by the introduction of robotic surgery and teleconferencing. The latter has enabled doctors to provide knowledge and expertise far and wide irrespective of their physical location. They can monitor, track and communicate with their patients to help them keeping tabs on their ailments (Raza, et al., 2014). Robotic surgery helps doctors conduct surgery remotely with the use of a machine that can multitask and overcome some of the limitations a human doctor may have. This improves the likelihood of an operation to be successful which benefits both the physician and the patient.
Use of these new technologies is compulsory as not only have they made surgery more efficient but also tackled some challenges that were considered impossible in the past such as organ replacement and valve replacement in the aorta (Lamba, 2011). In addition to this technology has changed the way surgery is done by finding more effective and efficient ways of carrying out complicated procedures through extensive research. It is not a surprise that there are now less invasive operation procedures that enable doctors work and stitch you up in no time leaving no scars.

"Doi, K. (2013) Basic Imaging Properties of Radiographic Systems and their Measurements. Progress in Medical Radiation Physics, 181-248. Kunio Doi in his publication speaks about the modern technology in medical imaging. He explains that the technology includes image production, image processing, image recording, CAD (computer aided diagnosis) and transmission of image encompassed in a communication system and picture archiving. The Journal explains further the technology revolution of imaging since the 1950s. This publication can be used by students, medical practitioners, and IT personnel when performing their research on Modern technology based on medical imaging."
"Feenberg, A. (2012) Transforming technology: A critical theory revisited. New York, NY: Oxford University Press. The author of the book gives information on modern technology as an advancement of a neutral tool. Being a civilization framework, modern technology has shaped our lives and values. He disputes that its roots of labor degradation, environment, and education do not lie in technology but cultural values. Feenberg also denies the obvious solutions like spiritual renewal, economic simplicity and gives a convincing argument for advanced technological choices in democratic participation. This book enables readers to understand the new technology in the medical industry and patient's behaviors."
"Hurley, J. E (2012) Policy considerations in implementing capitation for integrated health systems. Hamilton: Centre for Health Economics and Policy Analysis, McMaster University. Jeremiah Hurley, the book author, discusses the normative analysis performed in health sectors. He broadly explains the new technology impact on the health care operation and insurance markets. The new technology should reduce market failure and enhance equity and efficiency of financing, organization, funding and health care delivery. Hurley analyses the modern technology health care nature as a commodity of an economy characterized by insurance markets and health care operations. He adds that the modern technology has enhanced the policy advisors and health economists. This book will help the scholars and students when doing their extensive research on the medical field."
"Hendricks-Munoz, K. D (2015) Supporting Play Exploration and Early Development Intervention from NICU to Home. Pediatric Physical Therapy, 27 (3), 267-274. The Journal explains how the new technology is enhancing the field of healthcare and medical. Hendricks Drew in his article talks about the software programs which assist in the diagnostic process of its tracking procedures. The technology has improved the patients past treatment records for easy diagnosis. He adds that the new technology still needs the qualified physician to perform quality healthcare. This publication is best dedicated to students, physicians, and scholars during the research and study programs in the medical field to enable them to perform certain procedures in their programs using the tools available.
"Mali, S. (2012) Nanotechnology for Surgeons. Indian Journal of Surgery, 75 (6), 485-492. This journal describes the importance of modern technology regarding nanotechnology. Mali in his journal explains that nanotechnology has aided in patient's quick recovery, reduction of trauma and fear during surgery. The technology has also reduced the economic costs and the time wastage of treatment. He further reveals that the technology which is currently used for healing will also enhance human abilities (transcendence use). The journal is suitable for surgeons, patients, and students during research as it will enable them to plan treatment more precisely leading to the superior treatment execution plan."
"Organ, C. H (2015) Impact of technology in surgery. Archives of Surgery, 140 (11), 102. Research methodology entails the new technology impacts on operation. Organ explains that the technology in the health sector has brought many changes in the surgical field. The progress includes renal dialysis, transplantation, heart surgery, computed tomography, pacemakers, linear accelerator, magnetic resonance, auto analyzers serum channel, studies of diagnostic radioisotope and minor invasive surgery. The journal can be dedicated to surgeons, scholars, and students carrying out research on technology use in the provision of objects useful for patient's comfort and human sustenance."
