But development of these technologies has outpaced evaluation of their safety, efficacy, cost-effectiveness, and ethical and social consequences.

This volume, which is strongly recommended by The New England Journal of Medicine to all those interested in the future of the practice of medicine, examines how new discoveries can be translated into better care, and how the current systems inefficiencies prevent effective health care delivery.

In addition, the book offers detailed profiles of 20 organizations currently involved in medical technology assessment, and proposes ways to organize U.S. efforts and create a coordinated national system for evaluating new medical treatments and technology.
