Human Factors Informed Procurement and Implementation Process
HumanEra @ UHN & IFMBE Clinical Engineering Division
The human factors informed procurement and implementation process (HFPIP) is a framework that can be followed to support the human factors informed selection of medical technologies in hospital organizations. This framework builds on the traditional procurement process by incorporating human factors methods and standards to help inform a decision, and proactively mitigate residual risk as identified through human factors evaluations. This framework was developed iteratively based on the experience gained during several hospital procurement activities.
