The ECRI Institute has announced the availability of what it calls “a comprehensive decision-support resource for medical technology purchasers with user satisfaction rankings and other key purchasing information.” The SELECTplus User Experience Network is designed to provide purchasers of devices enhanced information about the performance of those products in actual use. The first module in the program focuses on CT scanning systems. To develop the module, ECRI polled nearly 300 users of one or more of 17 systems, asking them to rate the scanners on a variety of criteria. ECRI is currently conducting its next survey, of physiologic monitors. Results are expected in July.
