Certified Healthcare Technology Manager (CHTM)
The objective of the AAMI Credentials Institute is to be the trusted source for quality professional development and credentials for healthcare technology-oriented professionals and entities in higher education, industry, and healthcare delivery.
As healthcare becomes more complex, certification is one way to demonstrate and showcase competencies. Healthcare technology professionals seek certification as a way of demonstrating their accomplishments, mastery of skills, and experience in core competencies. Certification helps to highlight a professional's ability to provide quality and trustworthy service.
The healthcare technology manager is a person responsible for planning and directing the activities of other healthcare technology management professionals, monitoring their work, and taking corrective actions when necessary.
This HTM certification covers two major areas in healthcare technology management: the management of healthcare technology operations; and, the management of personnel. The functions of the manager include participation in the “leadership” of the business enterprise. The manager is also expected to have the skills and understanding needed to perform strategic, business, and change management as well as employee relations.
Recertification requirements for this certification are a combination of work experience and continuing education to demonstrate sustained competency and knowledge in the healthcare technology management field.
