Abstract
The application of biomedical engineering advances to health care delivery has provided both opportunities and challenges. One of these has been considerations of resource acquisition and distribution. Guidelines, agencies, modalities and devices have become increasingly apparent. Applications of the laws of agency and concepts of vicarious responsibility are particularly relevant. Certificate of Need legislation has led to antitrust considerations that are exceedingly complex. This presentation will attempt to evaluate some of the legal aspects resulting from the acquisition, allocation, and application of the many exciting technologies that are the subject of this symposium.
