With spending on healthcare technology increasing and the pace of innovation accelerating, AAMI is hosting its 2018 Conference & Expo this June in Long Beach, Calif., for those professionals who make, purchase, support, and service the dizzying array of sophisticated medical devices that are transforming the delivery of healthcare around the world.
During the conference, set to run June 1-4, thousands of members of the healthcare technology management (HTM) field and the wider healthcare technology community will gather to learn about the latest innovations and advances, get solutions to some of their toughest challenges, and connect with their peers.
“HTM professionals are constantly learning and adapting to changes in healthcare delivery and accreditation requirements, as well as changes to the technology and systems themselves,” says Sherrie Schulte, AAMI’s senior director of certification and the annual conference. “Attending continuing education programs, such as the AAMI Annual Conference, helps them stay on top of these changes, giving them a leg up in their careers.”
Education sessions during the conference will examine a wide variety of topics, such as cybersecurity, accreditation requirements, downtime planning for medical device systems, leveraging computerized maintenance management system data, life cycle management, human factors, artificial intelligence, procurement and standardization, maintenance strategies, and career development.
“This is a very exciting time for the HTM field, but keeping up with a rapidly changing health ecosystem can be difficult,” says Robert Jensen, president and CEO of AAMI. “The AAMI Annual Conference & Expo fosters an environment where sharing ideas, connecting with others, and learning are top priorities, giving attendees the tools and information they need to stay on top of the vast array of changes that are going on in the world of health technology.”
