Review "Technology is at the heart of current debates about the future and sustainability of health care systems. This book, a tribute to interdisciplinary thinking, uncovers the many facets of this complex interaction. Drawing from the fields of Health Technology Assessment (HTA) and Science and Technology Studies (STS), it presents an original approach to reconciling the innovation discourse with the conundrum of health care systems. A brilliant scholarly work." - Renaldo Battista, Director of Health Administration, University of Montreal, and Canada Research Chair in Health Technology Assessment   "The Problem of Health Technology is a lucid and thought-provoking analysis of core issues that lie at the heart of HTA. Pascale Lehoux has provided a timely examination of the limitations of health evaluation techniques and how these can be overcome. Placing HTA in its social context and drawing on work from science and technology studies, she not only shows how it is influenced by normativity, but also how through a recognition of this, it can develop a more transparent and so policy-effective contribution in the future. Her book is therefore not just of academic interest, but of great importance to HTA practitioners and policymakers" -Andrew Webster, author of Health, technology and Society. About the Author Pascale Lehoux is Associate Professor in the Department of Health Administration at the University of Montreal.
