AAMI’s Technology Management Council (TMC) is seeking specific examples of HTM initiatives that have enhanced patient safety, reduced costs, and/or improved hospital processes. This is your chance to showcase your HTM department’s outstanding work!

The TMC will choose six departments to be profiled in a feature article published in AAMI publications throughout 2024. Each Bright Ideas article focuses on the actions or processes HTM departments have implemented to tackle a specific problem or improve patient care.

In addition, one of the six profiled departments will be selected to receive this Bright Ideas award.
