Current Issue Highlights

January/February IssueThe relationship between healthcare technology management (HTM) professionals and clinicians is one worth cultivating. That’s the primary message in this month’s cover article, “Hello, Partner: How Working with Nurses Makes for Better Healthcare Technology.”

In the article, writer Chris Hayhurst interviews people in the field for tips on how HTM and clinicians can work together for the benefit of patients.

“… one of the most crucial relationships in any hospital is the one that exists between nurses, who are on the front lines of patient care, and HTM professionals, who are responsible for the safety and functionality of equipment they rely on each day,” the article says. “When that relationship is strong, the needs of nursing (and, by extension, the needs of the physicians and patients who rely on their care) are clearly expressed and quickly addressed, and both sides benefit. When it's not—well, that's when things can get rough.”
