This article discusses how a systematic approach to product selection and evaluation can assist health care personnel. This model considers four tenets: (1) quality, (2) cost, (3) safety, and (4) practitioner choice. An algorithm is utilized to serve as a visual guide for the introduction, trial, and selection of equipment and products. In addition to considering the four tenets, the article discusses the value of an integrated team approach and the importance of involving the staff in the decisions.
