Saeed, Khalid.


This project is a comparative study of the implementation an effects of medical technology at two medical institutions in Pakistan and the United States. I present an analysis of the latest technologies at these institutions, Aga Khan and UMass, to see if medical technology exists in a third world country and how it affects health care. However, because one of the hospitals is not a representative sample of its region, I can only make conclusions on medical technology alone, and not on health care delivery of these institutions.
