How MedTech ensures patient safety

Patient safety is a priority for the medical technology industry. Our companies develop devices and diagnostics that meet the highest safety standards and support good practice in risk management and infection control.

Adverse events and injuries are a threat to patient safety and the efficient delivery of healthcare. These incidents also erode public confidence in the healthcare system.

Empowered patients with enhanced access to information and training can play an active role in improving their own safety. The industry seeks to work closely with patients to better understand the factors which increase the risk of adverse events, and to develop patient-centred solutions.
