The essential purpose of this book is to draw attention to the problems of managing the creation and use of technology in health care, whether that means a new blood pressure machine or a new way of doing something, whether directly involved in the medical treatment process, e.G., The nurse practitioner, or in the management of that process, e.G., A management information system. The first section deals with research and development. The second section deals with the problems of introducing and diffusing new technology in the health care system. The third deals with the impact and consequences of technology in health organization, and the final section with the problems of evaluation and values as these affect critical decision choices.
