Such studies would involve continued efforts to: 1. identify technologies before they come into widespread use; and 2. prospectively assess the implications and consequences of the most important of these future technologies. 2. Existing policies need to be exawfned for their effects on health care technology development and use. The Commission also recognized that information itself is not enough. Information from technology assessment must be used to improve policy making toward technology. A policy structure has gradually developed to influence technological change in health care.

Examples include the definition of death, access to organs for transplantation, protection of individuals involved in human experimentation, and the status of the embryo and fetus. 44 In summary, technology can enhance the capability of improving the health status of the population and the effectiveness and efficiency of the health care system. However, a number of undesired or unanticipated side effects have also become visible (154). Some technologies have been accepted into widespread use before their safety and efficacy was thoroughly established.

2. Some examples of the consequences of new technology for the health sector are presented in brief form throughout this introduction. 24 Chapter I - Technological Change in Health Care and its Implications for Society One of the troubles of our age is that habits of thought cannot change as quickly as techniques, with the result that as skill increases, wisdom fades.
