Science and technology is continuously making contributions to further improve the health conditions. Researched based work is turning out to be prolific to ensure better care… delivery along with patient safety. Electronic Medical Records (EMR) is a significant contribution of science and technology to the world of healthcare. Physicians today use EMRs not only to document patient encounters but also ensure that better care delivery is just a few clicks away. Health conditions have considerably improved, thanks to EMRs.
The increasing power and functionality of technology has increasingly invaded privacy and complicated security. From a privacy standpoint, technology has made it possible f…or the government to track your travel habits, websites to track your spending and browsing habits, and employers to track your work habits. This means that potentially any action you take may be traceable by anyone interested in your activities. This increasingly invasive evolution of technology has landed far more people in jail, cost people jobs, and undoubtedly cost money and reputation. As technology improves, people that have traditionally never been caught in morally questionable acts are more likely to be exposed through technology. It has also allowed criminals to steal your identity and enabled a whole new class of crimes that were previously impossible or highly improbable. In any case, any modern computer user has far more information shared with more people than they realize than was even possible just 100 years ago. From a security standpoint, it has increases costs associated with security. For example, before the introduction of technology, the only way to steal from a company was to break in to their property or steal items from an employee; usually, a few common sense rules and a decent lock would deter most thieves. Now, with the proliferation of computer networks, small storage devices, and wireless technology, it is possible for employees to steal data without ever being caught, and for outsiders to steal information and cause monetary damage to a company without ever setting foot on the property. For that matter, the theft may occur from a different state or even a different country, and can be carefully disguised to make it difficult to track down. This has made it harder for companies to avoid theft, and made it easier for those wishing to commit theft or vandalism. In short, while technology has made life easier, we have largely traded our privacy and placed our security at risk in order for the conveniences that the technology offers.
Information technology has negatively impacted society. These negative effects include: the invasion of privacy, less employment and digital socialization which reduces pe…rsonal interactions.
Industrial agriculture pollutes soil, reduces biodiversity, pollution and genetic erosion.

Of course it made our lives easier and more convenient and faster too. But it also polluted our environment so we should start to practice the three 3R's unless you want the… earth to be a barren, uninhabitable planet.
Technology had a very large impact on the French Revolution. The guillitine was a device that was invented during the French Revolution. This was used to make the death penalt…y less painful, by cutting off peoples' heads in the split of a second. This machine caused so many unneccisary deaths during that time period and left many people in devastation.
