Thanks to Aaron Kassoff for forwarding this essay from MIT Professor Sherry Turkle





In this article, while a bit tangential to discussions of diagnostic error, elucidates some of the dangers of computerized medicine. Discussions by the SIDM have frequently noted the importance of a caring and attentive approach to doctor-patient interaction, this short essay emphasizes the human need for a sincere and sympathetic individual to interact with. This does not diminish the improvements in diagnosis utilizing such devices but the more the computer becomes the third individual in the discussion, the more the patient experiences a disservice.
