About the Book

Well-documented, organized and written for ready comprehension, this new book covers managerial, legal and financial strategies that are or can be employed to manage the health risks posed by technology. It demonstrates how each strategy is used and which ones are more valuable to decision-makers in different situations.

More than a dozen laws are reviewed through the legislative process, providing a clear understanding of governmental processes for risk management.
