Since the advent of computerization, ICT has formed a large part of nearly every sector, with health and education being the only exceptions. In this book, the author explores the application of computer technologies in medicine and the potential for a new age of industrialization in health.
Many have pointed out the organizational and legal limits of this. However, since medicine’s aim is to improve the quality (and quantity) of life and computerization helps it in its goals, the industrialization of medicine is inevitable.
The key question being how to implement this industrialization, this book explores how notions of identity, access, trust and information sharing will replace the more capitalistic vision born from the previous economic industrial revolution.
Taking time to assess and reflect on issues of health ethics, the author also gives an overview of what this will mean at different social and professional levels, in particular with regards to the patient.
