The AAMI Foundation
The AAMI Foundation’s primary mission is to serve public welfare and improve patient safety by fostering support and recognition for the advancement of medical technology management. It does this through the work of safety initiatives, the distribution of scholarships to students, global outreach initiatives, and awards for excellence.
The Foundation's Patient Safety Initiatives involve a diverse group of stakeholders focused on a common vision, “Safe adoption and safe use of healthcare technology.” These initiatives bring together the healthcare community, consumers, regulators, and industry partners to address and solve complex patient-safety issues that focus on clinical alarms, infusion-therapy safety, safe use of ventilators, and technologies used in the home.

The AAMI Foundation also recognizes individuals for their extraordinary role in improving public health care safety. The AAMI Foundation Awards recognize career achievement as well as superior work in medical instrumentation development, research, and applications, including engineering and related service.

In honor of Dr. Dwight D. Harken, the father of heart surgery and creator of intensive care units, this lecture is given each year at the Annual Conference and Expo and features a healthcare technology leader.
