The diffusion of innovative diabetes technologies as a fundamental cause of social inequalities in health
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.
