2015 Proceedings of the 5th EAI International Conference on Wireless Mobile Communication and Healthcare - "Transforming healthcare through innovations in mobile and wireless technologies"  
Safety factors are more important as medical devices become mobile and are used by patients as part of their everyday life rather than by trained professionals in well-defined hospital environments.  ...  Interactive medical devices such as infusion pumps, monitors and diagnostic devices help save lives. However, they may also fail in use and patient harm ensue.  ...  It was conducted by a team of over 30 people (see www.chi-med.ac.uk/). Stakeholders (industry, healthcare) across many domains have also given their time.  ...
