Title Medical Device Information System
Type Stage One
Code HPE308
Requirement Compulsory

Module objective

By the end of this module the Clinical Scientist in HSST will be able to analyse and synthesise their understanding of the medical device information systems. The Clinical Scientist in HSST will be expected to apply their knowledge as they become an expert user of the institution’s medical device information system and specify the features of a replacement system ensuring the existing system is robustly managed and updated. The Clinical Scientist in HSST will also be expected to evaluate their own response to both normal and complex situations using the professional attributes and insights required of a Consultant Clinical Scientist.

Knowledge and understanding

By the end of this module the Clinical Scientist in HSST will be able to analyse, synthesise and critically apply their expert knowledge with respect to medical equipment management including the: 

  • ability to formulate the requirements for an institution’s medical device information system.
  • ability to create the necessary data set to hold within the system.
  • taxonomy of medical devices and their nomenclature, to enable the effective categorisation of the Institution’s medical device asset base.

Technical and clinical skills

By the end of this module the Clinical Scientist in HSST will be able to demonstrate  a critical understanding of current research and its application to the performance and mastery of the following technical skills and will: 

  • apply engineering principles to classify and structure the institution’s approach to medical device categorisation.
  • apply engineering principles to the specification, implementation and ongoing use of the medical device information  system.
  • analyse and interpret data from the system.
  • display or extract all asset-related information as an expert user of the institution’s medical device information system.
  • use the Institution’s access specific equipment types for information from  the medical device information system, demonstrating an understanding of equipment classification.
  • establish the institution’s equipment holding by value and volume.
  • design, produce and utilise key performance indicators for use in performance management of the medical device risk management and governance service
  • maintain data integrity and security on the Institution’s Medical Device Information System.
  • Medical Device Information System to monitor progress on all service requests received.
  • produce a range of complex, bespoke asset based  reports.
  • perform statistical analysis of device data to establish reliability of devices and cost effectiveness of devices through their  life.

By the end of this module the Clinical Scientist in HSST will be expected to evaluate their own response to both normal and complex situations demonstrating the professional attributes and insights required of a Consultant Clinical Scientist working within the limits of professional competence referring as appropriate to senior staff and will:

  • validate the data set to ensure the system accurately reflects the clinical instrumentation used within the institution.

Attitudes and behaviours

By the end of this module the Clinical Scientist in HSST will be expected to evaluate their own response to both normal and complex situations demonstrating the professional attributes and insights required of a Consultant Clinical Scientist working within the limits of professional competence referring as appropriate to senior staff and will:

  • work in accordance with data protection and ethical guidelines.
  • ensure the integrity and security of data responding appropriately to issues as they arise.
