This book addresses the issue of managing modern medical innovations through an inductive approach of looking into cases before putting forward solutions in terms of strategies and tools. It provides a model for the designing and implementation of effective healthcare technology management (HTM) systems in hospitals and healthcare provider settings, as well as promotes a new method of analysis of hospital organization for decision-making regarding technology to deliver better medical technological innovations.

Given that medical innovations are mostly driven by technology (bottom-up) rather than top-down desires from the medical profession, the authors propose a strategy to manage medical technological innovations by finding a balance between bottom-up innovations (taking into consideration constraints, or standard for conformity, such as HL7) and what medical professionals want and need. In this book, the authors evaluate the issues of innovation strategies and present survey tools available to implement good designs. Case studies are used to demonstrate some of the applications areas of concepts and ideas outlined in the book.

Managing Medical Technological Innovations is organized in three parts. Part 1 covers innovation strategies, laying the groundwork and concepts in design thinking. Part 2 follows by presenting the tools available for implementation. And finally, Part 3 uses the case studies of pharmaceutical firms in China and Holland's hospital medical record management system to illustrate how these ideas and methodologies have been applied.
