Technology is one of the fatest changing components of the rapidly evolving healthcare information environment. New hardware, advanced communications technologies, and new methodologies are enabling process changes that will dramatically affect the way healthcare is delivered in our hospitals and communities. Many hold the additional promise of allowing cost reduction to beleagured healthcare systems. This issue of is devoted to exploring recent technological innovations, as well as older technologies now finding new applications in healthcare. Each of the authors explores a different technology, explaining its basis and then relating its value when applied to healthcare. It has often been said that healthcare is slower than other industries to adopt new technology to effect change. These authors demonstrate that the climate may be changing as the pressures on the industry tighten.
