The American Society for Health Care Engineering (ASHE) is recognizing the contributions its members have made to improve the healthcare physical environment. ASHE presented several awards during its 56th Annual Conference and Technical Exhibition last week in Baltimore.
HTM expert Patrick Lynch has compiled 10 reasons why he believes the industry needs a national HTM organization—one that is chapter-based, so that the local and state associations can merge under a national umbrella. That way, he says, biomeds can flex their collective muscle to really get something done, “instead of just meeting locally to complain about it.”
AAMI recently appointed TriMedx’s Scott Trevino to co-chair a committee formed to update the American National Standard on ANSI/AAMI EQ56:2013: recommended practice for medical equipment management program.
The 2018 American College of Clinical Engineering Body of Knowledge (BOK) has unveiled the results of their 2018 survey of HTM professionals. The 2018 BOK Survey was created for a unique purpose: to determine the current scope of practice and knowledge base for clinical engineers—information the U.S. Board of Examiners will use to design the clinical engineering certification exam.
The American Society for Health Care Engineering (ASHE) announces that it has received the 2019 Energy Star Partner of the Year Sustained Excellence Award for continued leadership and superior contributions. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy recognized ASHE’s contributions at a ceremony earlier this month.
The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) published NEMA CPSP 2-2018 Cyber Hygiene Best Practices, which outlines industry best practices and guidelines for electrical equipment and medical imaging manufacturers to raise their level of cybersecurity sophistication in manufacturing facilities and engineering processes.
