HTM Resources


As the international association representing all Healthcare Technology Management (HTM) professionals, AAMI has created many resources to help HTM Departments standardize and improve operations.  Many of these resources are free to the field and have been developed by AAMI's Technology Management Council (TMC), Healthcare Technology Leadership Committee (HTLC) and other HTM Professionals. 




HTM Levels Guide—A program planning tool for HTM departments

CMMS Collaborative White Papers

Computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) software has become essential for healthcare technology management (HTM) program operations. Due to a lack of standardization in data collection, it has been all but impossible to assess their industry as a whole. That’s why six competing CMMS suppliers recently came together to standardize how medical device information is configured.In the first phast of their work, they outlined an agreed-upon method for optimizing and standardizing failure codes. The second phase of the group's work focused on defining and standardizing CMMS work order types.
