What healthcare can learn from nuclear power industry?

Just came back from 2014 Symposium on Human Factors and Ergonomics in Health Care in Chicago. I attend a session presented by experts from AAMI, the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation  titled Safety and Risk in Health Care and Nuclear Power: Learning From Each Other .     By learning from nuclear power industry,  healthcare industry can use technology effectively and efficiently with systems engineering, human factor approaches. The re-engineered  new healthcare delivery system should integrate people, technology, process, organization and external environment. The cross industry collaboration is critical to transform the healthcare delivery.  Simulation will play more important roles on training, assessment, usability testing and process redesign.
