The results of the IOM study shows for the USA that deaths due to medical errors are in the 8th-leading causes of death . As mentioned before 60% of them are due to usability problems. According to Bleyer, X-ray machines are mostly involved in use errors. 7%. However for infusion pumps the outcome of the error is worse. 3%) of the incidents leads to the death of the patient, for radio frequency devices "only" 2%), for X-ray machines none . Another study of the US Food and Drug Administration confirms that infusion pumps and radiofrequency devices are mostly involved in erroneous situations .
They allow the user to achieve his goal efficiently, effectively and satisfied. Errors occur more rarely and at best work makes more fun. However usability aspects and the user centered design are not only justified by increasing user satisfaction, efficient and effective device usage, but also economic savings for manufacturers, users and clients as well as increased patients and user safety play a decisive role. ECONOMIC REASONS FOR USABILITY On the one hand patient treatment is combined with high costs and on the other hand health care providers have to act more and more economically.
