As of November 14, 2023, AAMI’s vastly improved Standards Monitoring Platform (StMP), has officially launched. A first wave of 81 working groups, representing more than 700 active standards development volunteers from regulatory bodies and the healthcare industry, have been invited to start using the platform.
For a list of all committees that have moved over to StMP, please visit the Find My Committee page on the AAMI website.
“StMP is not just a platform, but a finely honed tool designed to optimize workflow and supercharge efficiency,” said Matt Williams, vice president of Standards, AAMI. “The entire AAMI Standards Team has been hard at work preparing for this transition and we are looking forward to this new chapter.”
“The feedback from members during an initial testing phase was overwhelmingly positive,” added Anna Leggett, standards program specialist, AAMI. She noted, however, that AAMI staff is treating this first phase of transitions as a single stride toward refining AAMI standards development. “We plan to continually improve the platform and will consider participant feedback in this process.”
For more than 50 years, AAMI has been at the forefront in developing voluntary consensus standards, technical information reports, and other technical documents. These standards, developed through the coordination of volunteers from around the world, are used throughout the healthcare field to ensure the safe and effective production, distribution, and use of health technology. The subject matter experts who voluntarily participate in AAMI standards development serve more than 200 committees and working groups in all, making the first wave of StMP participants only a portion of the overall community.
AAMI’s remaining standards development committees will shift to the new platform in phases over the next 6-8 weeks. Training materials, including videos and walk-throughs, are also available on our website. AAMI is encouraging participants to view this material as soon as they are able.
