Summary

Summary

New medical technologies--pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and procedures--often allow great improvements in the outcomes of medical care, but they are also widely believed to be a major cause of increasing costs. Selective adoption of new technologies is crucial in the quest to control health care costs while preserving or enhancing the quality of care. This volume is the executive summary of a report that focuses on evaluation and adoption of innovative procedures and medical devices by managed care organizations (MCOs).
