Your Invitation - Help Name the Profession‏

Hello all,

We are looking for input from anyone in this profession that has an opinion they are willing to share. :)

I'd like to draw your attention to an important event that will take place later this month, and to solicit your assistance.

A group of 25 biomed/clinical engineering professionals, educators, and other industry experts will get together April 28-29 to help choose a name for the "medical technology management" profession and discuss where the profession is headed over the next decade.

The group includes a cross-section of medical technology management professionals-biomeds/clinical engineers, managers, representatives from The Joint Commission, ECRI Institute, AAMI, biomedical associations, device manufacturers, clinicians, educators and other interested parties.

Input from all corners of the profession will be helpful to encourage positive outcomes. So we'd love to get your feedback about these important issues. Please consider responding to this brief survey by Friday, April 15: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/KNQ65XG

Additional information about this event, which will be held at AAMI Headquarters in Arlington, VA, is available here: (http://www.aami.org/news/2011/040511.name.html).

I want to clarify that this effort to "name the profession" is designed to address the issue at a very broad and inclusive level, which is why we need your help in spreading the word, especially to the field service reps for your vendors or individuals in other related service roles that may not otherwise receive any of the information that goes out through our channels. There are many roles that add unique value, and the name of the profession should be broad enough to include ALL of them.

I personally want to thank AAMI for their efforts to host and facilitate this event, and thanks to all of you who choose to provide input via this survey. If we join together, we may finally become recognized as an integral part of the healthcare profession.
