Health & Technology
What will the Impact of Technology be on the social institution of health?
The technological revolution will impact every institution in society, including Health. The question is, What will that impact be? Locate three articles on Health and Technology and do the following:
Write a 1-2 page essay on the role of technology in health.
In the essay you must:
- Analyze the role of technology on the social construction of health and illness in the Age of Technology.
- Discuss whether increased technology will lead to more equity in health care or less equity (class, race, and gender) in the US and Globally (developed vs. developing nations)?
- Analyze your findings from a structural functional, conflict & symbolic interactionism perspective.
Here are three websites to get you started. Please include some additional articles besides those listed here. As always you must cite all resources using the ASA format:
- Is Digital Technology Making Health Inequality Worse?
- Technology – the biggest influencer of health care costs
- The Impact on It
- Write a 1-2 page essay on what you have learned
- Analyze the role of the culture of technology on the social construction of health and illness.
Remember for each writing assignment students are expected to support their responses to the questions posed by applying course material and additional, external research. It is important that you include proper documentation of this research in each and every assignment. This means you need to include in-text citations and a references page that meet ASA guidelines for EVERY assignment. This is reflected in the grading rubric. The links provided in the Course Overview, among other things, will provide you with information about these guidelines (see the Purdue Owl Lab or Quick Tips of ASA style for the most comprehensive listing of ASA style guidelines). FAILURE TO DO SO WILL RESULT IN POINT(S) DEDUCTION IN YOUR GRADE.
This assignment is worth 20 points. See the Grading Rubric for details. Please refer to the How Grades are Determined page in the Course Overview for additional information.
The format is ASA and you should use one source from the three on top and one online source
