Medical Devices, Medical Apps, Doctor and Patient

Education, Medical Blogs, Videos, Websites and Podcasts

The purpose of this website is to introduce both patients and healthcare professionals to the impact of the Internet on medicine and healthcare, by curating and organizing relevant articles in all fields of the digitalization of Medicine. (See i-NEWS section on Main Menu). Medical Apps and Medical Devices are examined, and internet technology and Patient Education are evaluated., for their places in all medical settings. The influence of the internet is shown in every Medical Specialty,, and improvements in Medical Education through the internet by showing the viewer the Top Patient Accredited Medical Information Websites, , the Best Medical Blogs, the top Medical Videos, and best Medical Podcasts. In addition to the latest-breaking Internet Medical News and Internet Medical Research News in all specialties are studied.. As Dr. Eric Topol of the Scripps Digital Medicine says, vast changes are occurring, now, due to the convergence of changes in technology. Medical Apps and Medical Devices are affecting many areas of of Medicine. Overall, the internet is changing all healthcare, from the use of Internet Technology in Hospital Administration in America to the use of iPhones to diagnose infectious disease in Africa

We are living in a great time for medicine. As most know, it is time for a change..
