ATLANTA, GA — Unlike in years past, today we can email our doctor and receive a direct response within 24 hours. We have patient portals to access our medical records and leave comments for our doctor, in real time, on how prescriptions and treatments are working — or not! If we need to see a specialist, our electronic medical records are easily transported anywhere in the world. The Bionic Woman, and the Six Million Dollar Man, 1970s TV shows, are today’s reality. Join us to learn how technology is transforming patient care and patient treatment.
