BI&T May/June 2017

2017 ASHPE Award WinnerIn this special issue of BI&T, the past, present, and future of healthcare technology intersect in commemoration of AAMI’s 50th anniversary. More than a dozen essays are featured from experts working in a variety of disciplines, including healthcare technology management (HTM), information technology (IT), human factors, cybersecurity, data analytics, systems engineering and safety, and standards development. In addition to addressing current challenges and opportunities in healthcare technology, our essayists peer into the future—one in which big data will evolve into huge data, improving the customization of patient care; wearables will become “everywhereables”; and human-machine teaming will become increasingly nuanced. And as these changes unfold, the line between HTM and IT will become ever more blurred. However, regardless of how the interface evolves, one thing is clear: HTM professionals—who understand the interface between the human body and technology—will continue to be essential members of the healthcare team.
