Daily occurrences in everyday life usually have few or no consequences, however complications sometimes arise. Because of this, technology has become a dependable and reliable source which can improve society’s way of life. Even with multiple examples of technology’s positive effect on society, many fail to acknowledge the success technology offers to humanity. With this success there are people who only clarify the opposing side.

Another factor that could affect whether or not a person gets a surgery is communication. Many argue that with more technological growth in the medical field, one-on-one interaction is becoming less important.

More institutions are adopting electronic health records, patients have easier access to their own information so they too can understand what is being done to them." If a patient is dealing with medical problems, a main database can help them research and understand their conditions. Although charts and papers are still used, they take up space while a tablet can display everything at the touch of a finger. Tablets are also easier to carry from room to room.
