The first chapter describes the health care delivery systems in Canada and in the US. This is followed by examples of various approaches used to measure physiological variables in humans, either for the purpose of diagnosis or monitoring potential disease conditions- a brief description of sensor technologies is included. The function and role of the clinical engineer in managing medical technologies in industrialized and in developing countries are presented, followed by a chapter on how to minimize liability and develop a quality assurance program for technology management.

The next chapter covers technical, social, and ethical issues related to telemedicine. A chapter discusses the impact of technology on health care and the final chapter is on the technology assessment process. Part II: The introduction discusses adverse events and medical errors. The next chapter presents how information technologies can help to reduce their occurrence.

Another topic is on medical databases, data collection, storage and retrieval. A chapter on electronic medical records follows. The safe and effective use of technologies is discussed. Medical applications of infrared imaging are included. Principles to consider when designing medical devices are discussed. The two parts consolidate material that supports two courses on technology development and management issues in health care institutions. It can be useful for anyone involved in design, development, or research, whether in industry, hospitals, government, or in universities and colleges.

It is not intended to cover all topics in depth but rather to provide an overview of the topics and sources where additional information can be found.
