  1. Assessing medical technology in less-developed countries.

    Article - En anglais

    Less developed countries (LDCs) are limited in medical resources.

    Medical technology and the management talent required to handle it play a particularly major role in their national health care and has significant economic, political, and ethical ramifications.

    This study of the assessment process of medical technology in the LDCs proposes a limited framework for the analysis of the major parameters involved, i.e., stakeholders, boundaries and constraints, goals and objectives, criteria to be met, performance measures, and measurement of performance.

    The importance of the intangible factors is elucidated.
