Languages of publication
In this publication the review of the literature points to the four main directions of research relating to innovation in their organizations. They are mainly of interest in the economic and technological aspect, treating hospitals as providers of information systems and comprehensive medical services. At the same time the importance of nontechnological innovation category was pointed out, such as organizational, social, management, and services and relational. It was emphasized that in today's world you cannot make the proper development of the health sector, one of the most modern in medical technology, but also should take into account other types of innovation. Such an approach seems to be best to continue the modernization of the current state of health care, improve the quality of life and increase the availability of new treatments to patients that respond to their needs.
