There are many answers that can be given, because computers and technology are changing the field of medicine in great ways. 

First, on the most basic level, computers are changing the way billing, record keeping, and other medical information is being stored, retrieved, and shared. This is making things much more efficient. 

Second, on a medical level, there are great benefits in terms of procedures. For example, laparscopic surgeries are amazing. Doctors are able to do surgeries through a small incision through a tube. The recovery time is cut in half and more.
