Healthcare is increasingly dependent on the use of an astonishing variety of pharmaceuticals and medical devices. Health Managers need to know :-
- How to ensure universal access to essential medicines and devices
- How to write specifications when processing these so that we get the best value for money
- How to assess technologies that public health systems should adopt for increased effectiveness and those that we should avoid, due to reasons of safety or poor cost effectiveness
- How to identify areas where new technologies appropriate to our needs are invented and to develop an ecosystem that focus on such innovations.
