2018 was a year of change for AAMI. It marked the first year of a new strategic plan and was topped off by a move to a state-of-the-art office space.
Stakeholders put their heads together during a Dec. 10–11 public workshop hosted by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) with the goal of discussing the distinction between medical device servicing and remanufacturing.
Expect changes in both substance and style as AAMI launches the AAMI Exchange, June 7–10 in Cleveland, OH.
With the approval of a new strategic plan in November, AAMI Foundation Executive Director Christine Emery is planning to transition the AAMI Foundation from its point-of-care–focused coalition work into an organization known for disseminating evidence-based, actionable solutions.
