Technology assessment is undergoing a profound transformation in some hospitals. Driven by diverse (and sometimes contradictory) pressures from consumers and payers for cutting-edge yet cost-effective care, hospitals are finding that the evaluation process is growing more complex. Experts say that a formalized assessment process can balance organizational goals and community needs.
