Hippocratic Oath for Connected Medical Devices
November 29, 2016Information
The Hippocratic Oath for Connected Medical Devices, by IamTheCavalry, is a must-read for anyone involved with connected medical device design.
The Hippocratic Oath is a symbolic attestation by physicians to provide care in the best interest of patients. Medical devices are key instruments of delivering this care. It stands to reason that the design, development, production, deployment, use, and maintenance of medical devices should also follow this symbolic spirit. Our Hippocratic Oath for Connected Medical Devices describes commitments to capabilities that preserve patient safety, as well as trust in the process of care delivery itself.
