Healthcare is an issue that is of great interest to viewers, and In Focus PBS is looking at several topics inside the industry to see how they are changing healthcare for all Americans. The Affordable Care Act is slowly being implemented, and this new legislation will have big implications for both consumers and healthcare providers.
From the research perspective, new treatments are making strides against disease and illness. By learning about diseases at the microscopic and even the molecular level, new treatments are becoming possible. Doctors are also augmenting these new treatments with alternative remedies like nutritional therapy, yoga, and even medication.
Another change that has not gotten much attention is electronic medical records. EMR is changing medical care by giving people more portability with their medical records. By incorporating the technology of the internet people now can give their doctors access to medical information from anywhere. The technology also saves time and money inside the medical industry because people now have more time to deal with patient issues because the records are so easy to maintain.
