The values embedded in medical technologies

The values embedded in medical technologiesWe all crave for health technologies that are faster, more precise and more effective. But at what cost? The Hinnovic team is thrilled to present this 6-minute video clip, inspired from a scientific paper, that summarises the values embedded in health technologies and raises questions regarding the direction health care innovations should take. Produced as part of our knowledge transfer and exchange efforts, the video clip aims at enabling discussion between health technology developers and users.


It was first shown at an invitational workshop hosted in Montreal in June 2012. Combining multimedia tools and small-group deliberations, this workshop was a rare opportunity for technology designers and users to interact and debate on technological and policy issues that are pivotal to the sustainability of healthcare systems.



We would love to find out what valuable features you think we should seek in the development of health innovations. Please use the comments section to let us know!
