Translated Transcript of Video
The health information technology allows us for the first time to have access to our own health information. This is through mobile applications, telephones, and computers that we use daily. We all have access to technology but not necessarily to the health information that can be transmitted through this technology, and that can help us make decisions to live better, to decide what type of treatment would better apply according to our health conditions and to those of our family and loved ones. In reality, it is a new world. It is a world in which medicine and communications come together making it now possible to have that information and knowledge accessible to help us improve our health status and improve our lives.
