The Technology Adoption Curve
When evaluating new technology options for your practice or department, first ask yourself, “Why do we want or need this new product?” To facilitate the decision-making process, compare the new technology with what you are currently doing.
Start by answering these questions:
Will this new technology increase patient safety?
Will this new technology improve patient outcomes?
Will this new technology increase efficiency?
Do the economics of adding this new technology make sense for me and my practice?
