Sterile Processing and HTM Departments Collaborate for Patient Safety

Friday, August 14th 2PM EDT with Jahan Azizi, Seth Hendee 

There is a fee associated with this program through AAMI. The cost for the sterilization track (5 programs total) is $125 for AAMI members and $175 for non-members. 

Objectives: 

  • The healthcare technology management professionals are in a unique position to collaborate with sterile processing departments (SPD) on enhancing patient safety.
  • HTM’s unique role in maintaining medical devices represents one of their many responsibilities, while SPD is responsible for processing accessories for many surgical medical devices. It would be a "win-win" solution if HTM/biomed departments included surgical accessories to their maintenance management system and performed pre-purchase evaluations of equipment, incoming inspections, and performance.
