BME 575 - Clinical Systems Engineering

Credits: 3

This course addresses the creation and use of biomedical “systems of systems” as applied in various health care delivery scenarios, including hospitals, home care settings, and environments that employ personalized wearable systems. The material focuses on technical areas typically associated with the field of “clinical engineering,” emphasizing the use of design standards that promote system interoperability and reconfiguration. Hardware/software interfacing and information management will be addressed from the sensor level to the level of the clinical enterprise. The course will also address human elements related to such systems (e.g., human factors, safety, medical ethics, training, etc.) as well as global technical, political, and sociological issues that may promote or hinder their use in different countries and cultures.
