Paper Abstract

The Center for Healthcare Technologies at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is a partnership among government, industry, and universities that focuses on improving healthcare through development of cost-effective technology. With the guidance of healthcare providers, medical institutions, and medical instrument manufacturers, technology can be harnessed to reduce healthcare costs. The partnership is a miniature test case for a potential national strategy for development and adoption of technology specifically to reduce costs.
