Abstract
One of the reasons there is not a simple answer to this question resides in a lack of clarity in definition of some of the key words involved. The first of those words is cost. Cost when used in the context of technology and health care organizations is defined in a variety of ways. One way is the actual purchase price and other direct expenses related to the technology in question. These are probably the easiest to identify and quantitate. The picture becomes murky as we move into other definitions, for example cost in use takes into account not only direct cost but indirect which is accounted for differently by different health care organizations.
