The increasing number of computer-assisted devices and instruments currently leads to the need to integrate medical systems and software solutions into a comprehensive infrastructure in the operating room and clinic. The great variety of devices and the information that accompanies them can be integrated within the scope of this network through dynamic networking to new and innovative functions.
The overriding goal of technical developments in medicine is to improve the quality and safety of health care.
The security and usability of networked medical devices and IT systems is a central quality criterion as well as an element of risk management. Due to increasingly complex technology and the growing complexity of human-machine interaction in the medical environment, the consideration of this aspect in the risk management of medical devices is growing rapidly Of importance.
