ECRI Institute中的醫學工程師, 科學家, 醫生及病患安全分析師, 針對2015年統計與分析出的醫療器材與病患安全通報結果, 依據五項觀點與十大因素挑選出2016前瞻十大醫療技術危害主題,包括:
 
1. Inadequate Cleaning of Flexible Endoscopes before Disinfection Can Spread Deadly Pathogens
軟式內視鏡使用前清潔不全, 會造成致命的病原體散佈.
2. Missed Alarms Can Have Fatal Consequences
未處理的警報, 可能會有致命的後果.
3. Failure to Effectively Monitor Postoperative Patients for Opioid-Induced Respiratory Depression Can Lead to Brain Injury or Death
疏忽術後病人因鎮痛藥物所引發的呼吸抑制監視, 會導致病人腦部損傷或死亡.
4. Inadequate Surveillance of Monitored Patients in a Telemetry Setting May Put Patients at Risk
配帶無線監視器的病人若發射器設定不完全, 可能會讓病人置於風險當中.
5. Insufficient Training of Clinicians on Operating Room Technologies Puts Patients at Increased Risk of Harm
開刀房技術員臨床訓練不足, 使病人受傷害的風險增加.
6. Errors Arise When HIT Configurations and Facility Workflow Do Not Support Each Other
醫療資訊技術 (Health Information Technology) 設定與製造商的工作流程無法互相支援時, 造成錯誤漸增.
7. Unsafe Injection Practices Expose Patients to Infectious Agents
不安全的注射方式, 造成病患曝露於感染源中.
8. Gamma Camera Mechanical Failures Can Lead to Serious Injury or Death
伽瑪照影設備機械結構故障, 導致病患嚴重傷害或死亡.
9. Failure to Appropriately Operate Intensive Care Ventilators Can Result in Preventable Ventilator-Induced Lung Injuries
加護用呼吸器操作上的疏忽, 會造成呼吸器引發病患的肺損傷.
10. Misuse of USB Ports Can Cause Medical Devices to Malfunction
誤用USB埠, 可能會造成醫療設備故障.
