AAMI Awards Now Open

AAMI Opens Nominations for Annual Awards


Who are your outstanding peers in healthcare technology? Now’s the time to give them a chance to stand in the limelight.

Each year, AAMI recognizes leaders and innovators who are moving the healthcare technology industry forward. AAMI needs your help!

Until Jan. 7, 2019, you can nominate yourself or other leaders in the industry for an AAMI award.

Award winners will receive monetary prizes and a plaque commemorating their achievements. Winners will also be recognized in a celebration at the 2019 AAMI Exchange, the name for the reimagined AAMI annual conference, in Cleveland, OH, next June.

“Professionals in healthcare technology have many different job titles and come from a variety of backgrounds, but all work to advance the safety and effectiveness of the field. Through our AAMI and AAMI Foundation awards program, we recognize those ‘healthcare technology heroes’ who are innovating, volunteering, and leading the way,” said MaryJane Thomas, director of membership development at AAMI. “We encourage you to nominate all who are working to advance the profession.”

There are several types of awards:

AAMI Awards recognize achievement in patient safety and healthcare technology management leadership

AAMI Foundation Awards recognize an individual or group for a unique or significant contribution to the advancement of healthcare technology and systems, service, patient care, or patient safety; humanitarian efforts to improve global human conditions with healthcare technology; or applied clinical engineering practices or principles to solve patient care problems or challenges.

Standards Awards honor major contribution(s) to the development or revision of a standard and to a technical committee.
