In brief: Technology

Save us, from what? Technology provides tools to make our work and lives easier. But we need to be aware of when & how we're using these tools.
In medicine, doctors do not rely on lab tests alone in diagnosing the problems their patients are having, but also do the long-held standard: history and physical exam. This is not high tech, but delivers good care -- with love too.
