It shares some similar and unique challenges to the enterprise and scholarship within healthcare as prior new technologies, including CD-ROMs, the internet, social media, and telemedicine. This presentation will give a brief background on current and proposed technology advances and how healthcare and healthcare training is currently affected, using both a futurist and an evidence-based approach to the available technology.
