Baltimore, Maryland

May 12, 2023


ECRI's Top 10 Health Technology Hazards for 2023 identifies the potential sources of danger we believe warrant the greatest attention for the coming year and offers practical recommendations for reducing risks. Since its creation in 2008, this report has supported hospitals, health systems, ambulatory surgery centers, and manufacturers in addressing risks that can impact patients and staff.

During a session entitled Inside ECRI's 2023 Top 10 Health Technology Hazards List, Rob Schluth, ECRI's Principal Project Officer 1, Device Evaluation, ECRI, will help participants identify critical health technology hazards and develop action plans for addressing those hazards to minimize risks and prevent patient harm. Attendees will learn about the topics that ECRI selected for its 2023 Top 10 Health Technology Hazards, as well as the process that ECRI uses to make those determinations.
