The obsolete hospital, courtesy of new tech?

Will technology soon make hospitals obsolete? It may sound impossible. But according to a recent report from CBS Atlanta, an international study on technology and health discovered that a majority of people around the world believe that traditional hospitals will be obsolete thanks to tech advances.

Intel study

The CBS Atlanta story covers a survey by Intel Corporation. Based on the survey, 57 percent of respondents feel that changing technology could make traditional hospitals obsolete. What is going to replace these long-time care centers? The Intel survey respondents cite the promise of customized personal care, as a result of improving medical technology.


Here’s what survey respondents want to see: They’d like to rely on personalized mobile technology to enable them to treat ailments at home. They’d also like to make use of this tech to maintain their health. The goal is to prevent those costly and time-consuming hospital visits. This interest in personalized tech is so strong that 30 percent of respondents said they’d even trust themselves to perform their own ultrasounds.

No privacy issues?

According to the CBS Atlanta report, respondents were so excited about personalized, mobile care that they are willing to sacrifice their privacy to try it. According to survey, 84 percent of respondents said they would not balk at sharing personal health information if doing this would lead to a more efficient and cost-effective medical system.
