About the National Coalition

The work of the AAMI Foundation National Coalition to Promote the Safe Use of Complex Healthcare Technology is intended to be a helpful resource for healthcare delivery organizations, so that every organization does not have to reinvent the wheel or start their work from scratch. It does not constitute legal, regulatory, operational, or procedural advice, nor does it constitute a standard of care. It is essential that each healthcare delivery organization assess the material in the context of its own organizational needs, culture, technology, and priorities.  Learn more.
