Computersand Health

Theheightened usage of computers has transformed the lives of manyindividuals as the devices are used in many areas such as simulation,navigation, and interaction (Teo,Milutinović, Zhou, &amp Banković, 2016).Computers are used in many sectors such as in research, governance,financial systems, security systems and even in the healthfacilities. The massive memory capacity of these devices makes itpossible for an individual to store big scores of data which they canthen retrieve at will. Computers have enhanced the growth of manysectors of the society such as health sectors (Teo,Milutinović, Zhou, &amp Banković, 2016).

Today,the patients can access their doctor and prescription from thecomfort of their computers as well as make orders on the same thatare delivered at their doorstep. The computers have assisted in therevolutionization of the transport and communication infrastructuresas well as the production sectors through facilitating researchersthat aim at improving the sectoral performance and offering betteroperation techniques for the machines (Teo,Milutinović, Zhou, &amp Banković, 2016).Therefore, computers are responsible for the development of many ofthe technologies that we use today (Teo,Milutinović, Zhou, &amp Banković, 2016).

Accordingto Teo,Milutinović, Zhou, &amp Banković (2016), theinvention of the web and the computer networks has opened up moreopportunities through facilitating the sharing of information. Thesesystems have facilitated the quick movement of data across the globewhich is analyzed by different professionals who make inferences onit. Therefore, many inventions have been perfected through thesharing of ideas from various experts and consulting the availabledata (Teo,Milutinović, Zhou, &amp Banković, 2016).Virtually, the internet has an answer for almost any question rangingfrom direction to statistics. The availability of informationcatalyzes the progress of the invention process. Computer networkingincreases the chances of professional collaboration across variousdepartments and institution through enhanced communication and bettermethods of sharing data.

Thereare several ways through which infectious diseases can be transferredfrom one individual to another. The most common are through direct orindirect contact with an individual (King,2014).Interacting with sick people put the healthy people at a risk ofcontracting infections. Some diseases may be airborne, so they do notrequire the people to make contact, for instance, tuberculosis. Otherdiseases spread through physical contact for example through theexchange of body fluids, skin contact, and ingestion of unhealthyfoods (King,2014).

Thepresent preventive methods have some limiting factors such as thelack of enough supportive evidence for the effectiveness of sometechniques. In spite of the efficiency of the newly developedtechniques, they may not be adopted since no proof about theireffectiveness exists. Continuous research, however, is beingconducted to evaluate the efficiency of these methods and there ishope that they may be useful for future practices (King,2014).Any intervention developed in the future will be adequately assessedand tested which indicates that the future techniques will be moreefficient than the present ones.

In1988, the digital cellular phones were invented marking a significantleap in the communications sector (Teo,Milutinović, Zhou, &amp Banković, 2016).This technology is important in people’s daily lives as it enhancesthe proper sharing of information and data between individuals indifferent parts of the globe. The invention of this technology helpedto reduce the time taken for people to reach one another through theold techniques such as letter writing and use of messengers (Teo,Milutinović, Zhou, &amp Banković, 2016).The invention made it possible for individuals to coordinate variousactivities and receives feedback while they are in far over places.
