“The online Town Hall meetings have been an incredible resource, and helped to bring HTM and IT professionals together for meaningful and practical sessions to improve patient safety,” says AAMI President Mary Logan. The Virtual Town Hall meetings are hosted by Elliot Sloane, PhD, President of the Center for Healthcare Information Research and Policy. “Elliot Sloane has done an amazing job as moderator, helping to bring continuity to the series of Town Hall meetings and helping to keep the sessions relevant to attendees.” In 2012, more than 1,000 healthcare organizations, providers, manufacturers and other stakeholder groups participated in the Town Hall meetings.

“HIMSS is pleased to join ACCE & AAMI in enabling healthcare technology management and IT professionals to embrace the challenges they are seeing everyday through practical and innovative resources offered through the Town Hall Series” says HIMSS Director of Informatics Christel Anderson, MA.

About the Clinical Engineering & IT Community

Formed in 2008, the Clinical Engineering & IT Community is a collaboration among members of AAMI, ACCE (American College of Clinical Engineering) and HIMSS (Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society). (HIMSS). By pooling our resources through this collaboration, we are seeking to: foster a united voice for IT and clinical engineering concerns; and develop important resources, best practices, and networking opportunities to advance the interests of HTM-IT issues in healthcare.

Additionally, the Community features an e-mail-based listserv through which participants can ask questions, share best practices, and exchange ideas with colleagues who are facing similar technology convergence-related issues. Additional information is available at www.ceitcollaboration.org.
