These systems create a more advanced way of recording, analysing, and understanding a patient’s situation.Patient accessibility – Through the use of computers in healthcare, patients are able to be more pro-active in their lifestyle choices. Using applications to track their daily activities and improve healthy decisions, computers help patients navigate their lives in a beneficial manner.
