Although With the advent of telemedicine, technology has changed the way medicine is administered, its human side is legitimate and necessary and will remain so.As vice-rector of health sciences of the Autonomous University of Guadalajara, Alfonso Peterson points out Farah:
“While it is true that technology has come to solve many technical aspects, technology has not helped us to solve the human aspects, which are two very important components in the practice of medicine.”
And he went on, giving an example:
“The issue of mental health, for example, at what point can a doctor support a patient with a mental health problem with technology, when the patient often has a mental health problem, not only needs to express himself , it requires closeness. You need the opportunity to express what you feel through an interlocutor who explains your feelings”.
