Research FG Medicine
Innovation- and technological impact assessment can provide support to society at large as well as to the healthcare system in the selection of the implementation and diffusion of biomedical technology. This requires effective concepts, which must be developed further on a continuous basis. Biomedical-Technology Assessment (BMTA) was developed based on already existing approaches to technological evaluation and Health Technology Assessments (HTA). It bears the complexity and multi-dimensional nature of biomedical technology and considers its consequences while integrating them into a evaluation scheme.
Areas of Study
The study of dynamics of development and the implications of modern biomedical technology, its required technological and organizational infrastructure, as well as its governance takes centre-stage at FG Medicine.
