Clinical Engineering Symposium
Presented by ACCE
Saturday, June 8 – 7:00 a.m.-10:30 a.m.
The In's and Out's of a Clinical Engineering Program
A Clinical Engineer is a professional who supports and advances patient care by applying engineering and managerial skills to healthcare technology. Clinical Engineering is a term frequently used but what does it mean and how is it used in practice? This symposium will cover various areas of clinical engineering including project management with respect to integration of systems and teams, personnel management, and managing equipment including cost containment and work quality. This symposium will be both theory and user experience stories with time for a panel discussion and interactive Q&A.
- Integration (cybersecurity) and project management – how they interlink (working with end users, acquisition team, c-suite, etc.) – network security for medical technology (including SOPs, policies, etc.)
- Personnel management – recruitment, retention - BMETs vs. CEs
- Balancing between cost and quality of timely repairs: 1) quality of work completed, 2) response time of repairs, 3) consideration of cost for repairs
