Paper Abstract

There was a consensus among the panelists that innovative (state-of-the-art) technology is seen by many politicians as a major driving force in the escalation of health care costs. It was recommended that a basic premise of any policy should be to provide high quality care while being cost effective through the proper assessment and use of technology. Technology assessment should be used to reduce ineffectiveness by comparing the efficacy and effectiveness of an emerging technology, comparing the relative effectiveness of alternate technologies, and performing cost effectiveness analysis.
