  1. The economics of medical technology.

    Article - En anglais

    The word « economics » is used in this paper in its widest sense, referring to issues that « influence the management, regulation and government of an enterprise ».

    In addition to the obvious monetary issues in health-care technology, social, ethical, legal and cultural issues are also discussed.

    The eventual, generally high cost of health care is definitely influenced to a greater or lesser extent by these factors.

    It is suggested that proper evaluation during the planning stage could lead to the development and introduction of technologies into health care in a more cost-effective way.
