Robert Jensen is the president and CEO of AAMI.

On behalf of the AAMI staff and Board of Directors, I’d like to welcome all of the attendees, exhibitors, and volunteers to the AAMI 2018 Conference & Expo.

The next few days are all about you: your needs, your learning, your career growth, your professional connections, and, yes, your fun.

We’ve developed this conference to provide you with solutions, insights, inspirations, and opportunities that you simply can’t get anywhere else. Along the way, I’m hoping you can catch up with old friends and make new ones.

The idea of inspiration is especially important. I appreciate how busy you are on the frontlines of health technology. Our time together in Long Beach offers you a chance to recharge your batteries and reconnect with that sense of purpose that drew you to this field. Last year was my very first AAMI conference, and I left feeling so very proud of a professional community that is smart and passionate about advancing safe and effective health technology.

Thank you for the crucial work you do for our healthcare system and thank you for joining us at AAMI 2018. If you see me, please make a point to introduce yourself. I want to learn more about your experiences, challenges, and priorities. Your feedback is crucial to our continued success—both for the conference and AAMI overall. We might not get everything perfect, but we will always strive to do so.

In closing, I’d also like to thank the medical device companies and service organizations in our Expo Hall. Their innovative spirit never fails to impress. It’s well worth everyone’s time to tour the Expo, seeing the latest in health technology. A special thanks to our extraordinary conference sponsors for their generous support. This event is enriched by your commitment.
