Is your local health system meeting a growing demand for home healthcare? Is your healthcare technology management (HTM) department suddenly doing house calls? AAMI wants to hear all about it and more for a unique survey of the HTM field.
AAMI’s Technology Management Council (TMC) is seeking feedback from HTM professionals regarding if and how they are approaching home healthcare and the maintenance of devices used in the home. Relevant organizations and professionals are welcome to participate in the ongoing survey that will help shape future AAMI resources and guidance.
Mike Busdicker, chair of AAMI’s Technology Management Council and enterprise director for Intermountain Health stated, “We’re looking at maintenance management systems, independent organizations, in-house programs, and manufacturers. The more information we can collect from the field, the better clarity we’ll be able to provide.”
The main question the survey is seeking to answer is “what is the involvement of HTM departments in home health?” Once Busdicker and others better understand how the average HTM department is approaching this challenge, they’ll be able to identify common challenges the TMC may address by creating guidance documents and curating resources for the greater HTM community.
If you qualify and are interested in helping AAMI understand the state of home healthcare in HTM, consider participating in the survey today!
