Do we rely too heavily on technology for medical diagnosis?
Hello Mark: I think most persons, sans the very elderly, critically injured, or those with physical challenges can manipulate a simply designed medical UI. Just think of the millions of people around the world who input data into things like Facebook. They tend to get it right.

Do we rely too heavily on technology for medical diagnosis?
Hi Neema: You question is really provocative. And, not one that is easily answered. Before trying, however, I wonder whether you have seen this little TED talk: http://www.ted.com/talks/katherine_kuchenbecker_the_technology_of_touch.html As for me, I say more technology. My position assumes most doctors are incompetent. There is a kind of blind arrogance that many have. They just make judgments after half reading chats and half listening. Some are fundamentally biased. Knowing this, I would strongly encourage not only more technology, but also data inputs on the patient side that describes symptoms. These inputs can be accomplished in a physician's office, and while the patient is waiting to be seen by his or her doctor. Once these things are inputted, certain triggering analyses may take place to help the physician make best judgment decisions. I am actually developing a module that addresses this issue, If interested, feel free to contact me.
