Medical systems are currently being developed that integrate the multiple devices that are often connected to patients, for example in intensive care or where there are multiple patients in medical wards managed by limited numbers of clinicians. This position paper considers a model of such integrated devices, and the human factors engineering challenges that are important considerations in their development. The model is used as a basis for proof that specific use-centred safety requirements hold of a design that satisfies the model. The paper describes how a model may be used to prove two classes of use-related properties. The first concerns the consistency of multiple displays of the same information while the second proves that actions relating to the same device and patient invoked in different work stations have equivalent effect.
