  • How to evaluate whether a new technology in the operating room is cost-effective from society's viewpoint. Anesthesiology clinics Tan, J. M., Macario, A. 2008; 26 (4): 745-?


    The hospital operating room is one of the most important and costly environments in health care. Given the current reductions in reimbursement and limited resources, hospital administrators and operating room managers have to be careful about adopting new technologies into the operating room. Operating rooms must balance the improved care a new technology can provide with its additional costs. Economic analysis provides systematic methods to guide decisions by quantitatively assessing the value of a new technology.
