This is a Healthcare related extension to the TBM Tower Taxonomy. This tower extension includes costs to acquire, implement and support non-software medical devices (instruments, machines, apparatuses) used for medical purposes (https://www.who.int/medical_devices/full_deffinition/en/). Costs that fit into other standard Tower/Sub-Tower categories should be included there first. Examples include x-ray machines, specimen collection devices, infusion pumps, etc. Software for medical purposes should go into the Application tower.
