The American College of Clinical Engineering (ACCE) Healthcare Technology Foundation will host its annual meeting next month and will hold a unique colloquium on responding to medical device incidents before the four-day gathering.

The foundation has invited a diverse group of stakeholders—including medtech manufacturers, hospital personnel, and industry regulators—to meet in the Texas Medical Center in Houston on March 8. Those gathered will attempt to develop an integrated action plan for improving patient safety through an effective system for reporting device-related failures.

The colloquium is being sponsored by the ACCE Healthcare Technology Foundation, Texas Children’s Hospital, Texas A&M University, and the FDA Medical Device Industry Coalition.
