Technology has revolutionized the way healthcare is being delivered today, from preventive medicine to rehabilitation. Future technological innovations will transform healthcare, helping health-care professionals provide better services with enhanced precision. More than anything, technology drives healthcare, enabling good health and wellness to people all over the world. The emergence of health information technology has made things easier, faster, and simpler for health-care professionals. It provides information they need with the click of a button. According to the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC), in 2018 a majority of individuals (84 percent) are confident their medical records are safe from unauthorized viewing but have concerns (66 percent) when health information is electronically exchanged. More individuals are now confident their records are safe from unauthorized viewing, compared to 2017.
