Table 1

From HTMcommunityDB.org

Devices most likely to benefit from PM - specifically with respect to reliability and patient safety

These device types are considered to be potentially PM-critical devices because they could have some level of adverse effect on patient care either

(a) when they fail unexpectedly because a scheduled device restoration task had not been completed in a timely manner (see Table 2), or
(b) when they develop a significant but hidden performance or safety deterioration because a scheduled safety testing task had not been performed in a timely manner (see Table 3)

The items in red are the top twenty devices listed in Table 4. They have the highest potential severity adverse outcomes (LOS 3 - serious, life-threatening injury) if they fail. These devices, which the Task Force calls "Potentially high PM risk devices", are analogous to what the CMS regulation calls "critical equipment".

The table provides a useful "crosswalk" between the HTMC standard name (C2) for each device type and other commonly used names for the same type of device. Downloading Table 1 into Excel and using the Excel search feature will allow location of alternate common terms in the "Other AKAs" column (C4) and determination of the corresponding HTMC standard name for that particular type of device.
HTMC standard names for specific manufacturer-model versions of the potentially "critical" device types can be found listed in Table 13.

  • This table is not necessarily complete but this is a wiki site and members of the Health Technology Management (HTM) Community are invited to review the professional judgments reflected in this analysis and submit any comments, particularly any suggested changes, to Alan Lipshultz, CCE, PE, CSP, CPPS - Director of the Task Force - at Alan@HTC.pro
