Forum Recommends Unified Name for Field
A diverse group of 30 industry professionals has recommended that “Healthcare Technology Management” be the official name of the field responsible for servicing and maintaining medical technology.
The group chose the name during a Future Forum on April 28 and 29 facilitated by AAMI, and attended by clinical engineers, biomedical equipment technicians, educators, and other industry professionals.
“We felt that this name was accurate, easily understood by the public and other healthcare workers, and allowed for expansion of the field in the future,” said Pat Lynch, CBET, CCE, a biomedical support specialist at Global Medical Imaging.
During the two-day meeting, the group also spent considerable time crafting a vision for the future of the field, which includes the management of healthcare technologies that are highly integrated and interoperable. "AAMI Site"
Medical Technology Management
Medical Technology Assessment is the objective evaluation of a medical technology regarding its safety and performance, its (future) impact on clinical and non-clinical patient outcomes as well as its interactive effects on economical, organizational, social, juridical and ethical aspects of healthcare. Medical technologies are assessed both in absolute terms and in comparison to other (combinations of) medical technologies, procedures, treatments or ‘doing-nothing’.
The aim of Medical Technology Assessment is to provide objective, high-quality information that relevant stakeholders use for decision-making about for example development, pricing, market access and reimbursement of new medical technologies.
Medical Technology mission is to support the delivery of healthcare by insuring the availability of safe and effective medical technology in a cooperative effort with the other members of the healthcare team.
