Learning how to use new healthcare technology is a complex challenge, and improving training is just one part of any long-term solution, according to nurses, vendors, and other experts who attended the AAMI Foundation’s first Industry Council meeting.
Responsibilities that were once seen as the sole domain of information technology (IT) professionals can blur into the realm of healthcare technology management (HTM).
To alert the public earlier to potential safety issues with medical devices, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has proposed a system that will highlight “emerging signals.”
During the conference, which will be held June 3–6 in Tampa, FL, 100 healthcare technology management (HTM) experts and leaders will discuss virtually every major issue facing the field.
