Healthcare Technology Management (HTM) Week, May 19–25, 2024, is our industry's opportunity to honor and recognize the innovative work our engineers and other HTM teams are doing to keep hospitals running. HTM helps healthcare organizations to comply with applicable regulatory and accreditation requirements, enhance patient safety and satisfaction, increase productivity, and reduce expenses through a continual improvement process based on data collected in equipment maintenance and management. We recognize that the work our HTM teams do is foundational to care delivery, ensuring that patients can be diagnosed and treated, efficiently and effectively all day, every day across the system of care.

This week - and throughout the year - we celebrate our HTM teams. Here are just a few impressive Healthcare Technology Management team members.
