The paper discusses how a degree of technological advancement is essential to continually improving the standard of care provided to patients, yet, there is also the question of the neutrality of technology in the art of health care. The paper asserts that the art of health care involves people, not technology and this aspect cannot be compromised. The paper contends that the human touch can have as much impact as the monitoring equipment used.

The Tool, Machine and Material Object
The Health Care Institution/Hospital as a Technological World

From the Paper:

"The pervasive presence of technology has for most become a monument to the ingenuity, persistence and flexibility of the human mind and spirit. It is a symbol of the unceasing struggle for control of one's fate in the midst of adversity and uncertainty. This is no less prominent than in the practice of modern medicine. The present sophistication and sheer complexity of technology is not only immense compared to health care a century ago, but also evokes mixed sentiments towards its progress to even more sophisticated "health care solutions.""
