Human Factors Engineering and the Medical Error Epidemic

Medical error is the third leading cause of death in the U.S. With a death toll estimated at over 250,000 people per year, the problem has the attention of government, industry and academia

As part of the Texas Health CoLab Learning Series, Michael Wiklund will discuss the medical error epidemic, the work flow of a typical human factors engineer from an idea to a near-final product, how human factors engineering fits into startup companies and how to satisfy regulators’ expectations in the U.S. and EU.
