Paper Abstract

The cost of health care continues to be a major national concern. I believe that properly applied technology can help reduce the cost of health care while maintaining or improving quality. This paper presents a description of an approach to defining the proper role of technology in health care, provides examples of how technology from the national labs can help meet the needs of the medical community, and then describes how the national labs can work with industry, universities, and medical research facilities to advance the goal of properly applying technology to reduce health care costs.
