The Diffusion of Health Technology BAA634
This unit explores issues relating to diffusion of innovation, technology acceptance, and change
management. Relevant theories relating to these areas are critically analysed. Strategies for successful
implementation of technology are explored, including the identification of barriers to implementation. The
diffusion of technology from the organisational and social context of health care is assessed. This includes
the characteristics of health organisations and technology and the ways in which innovative individuals and organisations facilitate the successful introduction of health technology.
