Y2K and the medical industry. I work for a major medical center, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, in Los Angeles. As with any business, there are potential Y2K problems in accounting systems, computers and computer networks. In addition, there are a number of medical devices that use embedded chips to perform some of their functions.

      Y2K: Don’t worry, just prepare for the worst. Officials say there are two tacks when it comes to preparing the public for what the Y2K bug will do to businesses. On one hand, they say, don’t panic—the prospects aren’t as bad as you’ve heard. On the other hand, prepare just as you would for any potential g: medical devices.   Tardiness may be a virtue for the doctor DuPage Medical Group, and its thousands of patients, when it comes to dealing with the Y2K computer bug.

With just under three years to go, the clock is ticking. Y2K warnings are everywhere and, if we are to judge by the breadth and depth of expert opinion, for good reason. We can hope that the most dire of the Y2K predictions turn out to be overreaction, but far too much is at stake to risk leaving it to chance.

Nowhere is that more true than when it comes to medical devices. The FDA has found no device implanted into people that causes any Y2K concern. Some other medical machines do have computer chips that use a date, but a recent FDA audit concluded those that pose.

Description. Medical Devices and Regulations: Standards and Practices will shed light on the importance of regulations and standards among all stakeholders, bioengineering designers, biomaterial scientists and researchers to enable development of future medical devices.

Based on the authors’ practical experience, this book. This is because the FDA anticipates that, even where Y2K problems in computer hardware, software, medical devices, office operations, Medicare claims submission systems and business partner systems were identified, corrected and tested for Y2K readiness before January, other unanticipated Y2K problems might develop and require correction.

Patient safety is important to all health professionals, but fatal accidents occur with medical devices every year. This is the first book for people who use medical equipment, rather than for engineers or technicians.

It will help personnel within healthcare to avoid accidents by bridging the gap between the design principles and the user. The book encourages safe use of a wide range of Reviews: 1. The Year problem (also called Y or Y2k38 or Unix Y2K) relates to representing time in many digital systems as the number of seconds passed since UTC on 1 January and storing it as a signed bit integer.

Such implementations cannot encode times after. New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center, for instance, is determining whet medical devices -- electrocardiographs, infusion pumps, defibrillators and even beds -- will work correctly in the next century.

The Y2K problem is also becoming a cultural phenomenon, appearing in comic strips and Hollywood screenplays. Health care Y2K resource book is now available. It’s not too late to prep your facility.
