As healthcare becomes more complex, accreditation is one way to demonstrate and showcase competencies of a strong educational program. It strengthens the public confidence in educational institutions providing highly qualified HTM professionals for healthcare systems.
A new committee has been formed called the Healthcare Technology Accreditation Activities Committee (HTAC). The group is responsible for the program-specific accreditation activities associated with ABET. The group strives to strengthen the academic experiences of HTM professionals, and promotes collaboration among educators. Made up of a chair and three additional members, the current chair is Steven J. Yelton, PE, CHTM.
- Advocating for the development and advancement of HTM education worldwide.
- Communicating with our constituencies and the public regarding educational program development, implementation, and delivery.
- Anticipating and preparing for the changing environment and the future needs of constituencies.
