The Brief Life of the National Center for Health Care Technology
New England Journal of Medicine. 1982 Oct 21; 307(17): 1095-1100.

The demise of the Center after a three-year existence is attributed to the opposition of some professional organizations, the misconception that it was a regulatory body concerned with cost containment, and fears that it would stifle innovation and limit physicians' decisions.
