Abstract

This paper looks at technology and health care in terms of processes (here defined as goal-related, autonomous and selfregulated arrangement of actions) and their interactions. Using this approach, technology is considered to be the quality of the processes we are trying to achieve. However, health care and the life around it is a complex network of closely interacting processes, and through their interactions, processes can influence each other in various ways. In many cases such interactions can result in unwanted, inappropriate interference imd the implementation·of unsatisfactory health care technologies.
