Collaboration Across OEM, ISO, and HDO Communities Planned to Maximize HTM
Tech Knowledge Associates’ (TKA’s) Senior Vice President of Marketing and Sales, Dave Francoeur, has been selected to serve another three-year term on the Board of Directors for the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI). A major focus of AAMI is to facilitate and promote collaboration among Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), inhouse Healthcare Delivery Organizations (HDOs), and Independent Service Organizations (ISOs) to make Healthcare Technology Management (HTM) the best it can be.

AAMI also develops consensus standards and guidance documents for the HTM community, as well as the medical device industry. One example is EQ56, which is undergoing an update and provides a recommended practice for a medical equipment management program.
