Danielle McGreary, CHTM, PMP, Vice President of Healthcare Technology Management at AAMI presented the latest Webinar Wednesday session.
McGreary’s work experience includes District Manager at Aramark, Healthcare Technology Director of Clinical Engineering at VA Boston Healthcare System, and Clinical Engineer & Project Manager at Hartford Hospital. She holds a B.S. and M.S. in Biomedical Engineering.
The webinar featured McGeary “unpacking” AAMI’s new “HTM in a Box” tool and illustrating how HTM professionals can use it to promote the field to all different age levels. With fewer qualified candidates in the hiring pool and an aging workforce, recruiting new HTM professionals is more important than ever. With “HTM in a Box,” AAMI has helped make promoting HTM easy!
Webinar Wednesday would like to thank AAMI for sponsoring the webinar. The Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) is a nonprofit organization founded in 1967. It is a diverse community of approximately 7,000 professionals united by one important mission — the development, management, and use of safe and effective health technology. AAMI is the primary source of consensus standards, both national and international, for the medical device industry, as well as practical information, support, and guidance for healthcare technology and sterilization professionals.
