AAMI All Star: Julio Huerta

Julio Huerta
Julio Huerta is the district manager for Aramark and director of the Medical Engineering Department for the University of North Carolina Hospitals.

AAMI activities:

Imaging co-chair for the 2004 and 2005 AAMI Annual Conference & Expo and a member of AAMI’s EQ Medical Equipment Management Committee, Certified Healthcare Technology Manager (CHTM) Committee, Supportability Task Force, HTM/IT Bridge Role Task Force, and Healthcare Technology Leadership Committee (HTLC).

Most enjoyable part about volunteering:

“Having the opportunity to work with and learn from the brightest and most dedicated leaders in our profession. The personal and professional relationships formed while working together become cherished friendships that promote teamwork and encourage further collaborations. Those are the engines that keep our profession moving forward.”

Something people might not know about me:

“What a literal circle my professional life has been. My first job right out of college was as a systems engineer with a large computer manufacturer. I missed working on hardware, and clinical engineering gave me the opportunity to get closer to it. Today, I spend most of my time dealing with systems integration challenges.”
