  • Medical Errors With Healthcare Technology

    Research into medical errors with healthcare technology, devices, instruments, and information systems will have a variety of applications to different constituencies throughout the healthcare community, including healthcare providers, healthcare institutions, accreditation groups, regulators, and manufacturers and vendors. Healthcare institutions may use the study results to examine their management and training practices and processes, identify areas of risk in areas of medical specialty, and modify policies and procedures to mitigate those risks. Regulators and accreditors may use the study results to identify areas for improvement in human factors, clinical procedures and processes, or organizational systems. Practitioners, researchers, and others investing resources in risk mitigation and accident prevention will use the results from such research to guide their priorities and focus their efforts. Medical and nursing schools may use the study results for healthcare technology curriculum development and enrichment in patient safety.

    The current (and ever increasing) level of dependence on healthcare technology dictates that errors associated with its use be a focus of future patient safety research. Medical device development is proceeding apace and healthcare technology, in the broad sense, will become ever more sophisticated. Greater sophistication and new developments are both good and bad. They are good in the sense that technology will likely be more efficacious and reliable, but bad in that more errors are likely to occur with more complicated equipment. This will be especially true in technology intensive medical specialties.

    Research into medical errors involving healthcare technology and medical devices should be targeted by medical specialty or by technology type. In this regard, we pose the following specific research agenda questions:

    To what extent do medical devices and related information systems contribute to medical errors (including medication errors), especially within the technology intensive medical specialties?

    What engineering controls, including those based on continuing human factors research, can be employed to minimize the likelihood of medical errors?

    Does the frequency and severity of device-related error justify developing broader reporting and prevention interventions?

    Success in developing effective strategies for technology related error prevention has been achieved in a few specialties, such as anesthesia and cardiopulmonary bypass perfusion, but research in many other clinical areas of high technology use are needed. These areas of medical specialty include intensive care medicine, emergency medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, general surgery, cardiac catheterization, clinical laboratory, and respiratory therapy.

    Ensuring a research agenda on medical errors that involve the use of a healthcare technology holds the potential for developing a large base of empirical data that may highlight common areas of risk in other healthcare settings. This, in turn, would point to promising broad-based methods for preventing healthcare technology related medical errors. Such research could be conducted using a large-scale healthcare accident databases that could facilitate the study of risk factors associated with medical technology and could help identify opportunities for accident prevention.
