Presented by MassMEDIC and EMERGO by UL, Human Factors Research & Design

On March 7th, MassMEDIC and the Emergo Group by UL are convening a panel of patient safety experts, medtech leaders and product developers for a robust discussion about medtech’s role in protecting patients.

In this session, which will also include a screening of a new documentary “To Err is Human,” experts will discuss the state of patient safety and how leading medical device makers are incorporating patient safety concerns in every level of the development process.

This program will begin with a panel discussion and conclude with a viewing of this gripping documentary film.

All members of the medtech community are welcome to join us for this critical discussion of one of healthcare’s most pressing needs.
