In a year defined by turbulence, including the culmination of the COVID-19 national emergency, the rise of AI technologies, and global economic uncertainty, 2023 also saw salary fluctuations in the healthcare technology management (HTM) field.

It wasn’t all gloom and doom in 24×7’s 2023 compensation and job satisfaction survey— nationwide, BMET 3s, radiology equipment specialists, managers, and directors/executives saw moderate salary growth in 2023, with wages surging $4,400, $3,500, $6,300, and $6,400, year-over-year, respectively. Unfortunately, their BMET 1, BMET 2, and clinical engineer peers didn’t fare as well in 2023, with their median national salaries sliding a respective $600, $3,800, and $6,000, year-over-year.
