Management Technologies for Managing the Health Care Sector Technologies

  • Arnold Reisman
Part of the Management of Medical Technology book series (MOMT, volume 1)


From the beeper system used by a solo practitioner making house calls in some rural setting to the MRI unit in a major urban teaching hospital; from the single desktop computer used for automating some of the office procedures in a doctor’s office to the nationwide DRG based prospective reimbursement system; technology in the health care sector is everywhere.
