This paper investigates patterns of adoption and diffusion of innovative health technologies by socioeconomic status to assess the extent to which these technologies may be a fundamental cause of health-related illness. The study, which is part of CHAIN’s HEAL-Tech project, found that there were SES-based gradients in the adoption of the technologies, with high-SES groups having higher adoption rates.
