During the AAMI 2018 Conference & Expo, set to run June 1-4, thousands of members of the healthcare technology management (HTM) community will gather in Long Beach, California, to learn about the latest innovations and advances in healthcare technology, get solutions to some of their toughest challenges on the job and connect with their peers.
“HTM professionals are constantly learning and adapting to changes in health care delivery and accreditation requirements, as well as changes to the technology and systems themselves,” said Sherrie Schulte, AAMI’s senior director of certification and the annual conference. “Attending continuing education programs, such as the AAMI Annual Conference, helps HTM professionals stay on top of these changes, giving them a leg up in their careers.”
Throughout the conference, industry experts and leaders will share valuable insights on the biggest trends and challenges in the healthcare technology sector and provide practical tips and guidance. In addition to education, networking and professional advancement activities, the conference offers an expo hall that will feature the latest technology from more than 200 medical equipment manufacturers.
More than 90 percent of the biomedical and clinical engineers, healthcare IT specialists, clinicians and other HTM professionals who attended last year’s conference agreed that the event was a good place to gain insight on how their organization could improve clinical outcomes. The conference also provided a good perspective on the state of the HTM field, they said.
When asked what they gained from their conference experience, nearly all attendees said they acquired new business contacts, learned about new products and technologies, were exposed to new ideas applicable in their jobs and returned home with new skills and best practices.
Early-bird discounts are available until March 16. For more information about the conference and to register, visit www.aami.org/ac.
Find Content by Topic on the AAMI Website
The AAMI website has a new “Browse Topics” feature that allows visitors to find multiple resources related to a specific topic of interest, such as cybersecurity.
Resources listed under any given topic might include standards, news articles, videos or manuals. The new functionality is part of a broader effort to better showcase the many resources that AAMI has developed for the healthcare technology community and improve access to them.
“As AAMI develops more content and tools to help healthcare technology professionals, we know that we must make this material easier to find,” said Sean Loughlin, AAMI’s vice president of communications and marketing. “This is an ongoing effort, and we’ll be listening to our members and website visitors to guide us on further improvements.”
