Offsetting Medical Device Time Errors with Wall Clock Synchronization
Today’s hospitals operate a great variety of medical devices which are rarely synchronized to the same time. This can lead to errors in timekeeping of medical activities which could ultimately result in unfavourable patient outcomes. This paper documents the existing studies on the subject and explains how the use of a medical timekeeping protocol based on NTP synchronized wall clocks and work stations can help overcome this nationwide problem.
