AAMI Publication: Going Wireless

A special compilation of AAMI wireless articles and resources

About This Compilation:
AAMI has created this special compilation of wireless resources to provide insight and practical guidance to the healthcare technology community. These articles, originally published in AAMI’s journal, magazine, and summit publication—examine the major wireless challenges in healthcare.  These peer-reviewed resources include case studies, a list of common mistakes, and additional resources and reading materials that you may wish to review.  We encourage you to read the publication and apply lessons to improve patient safety, share this document with your colleagues, and nudge other organizations to help address these important issues.

About AAMI:
The Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI), a nonprofit organization founded in 1967, is a diverse alliance of nearly 7,000 members from around the world united by one critical mission—supporting the healthcare community in the development, management, and use of safe and effective medical technology.

AAMI serves as a convener of diverse groups of committed professionals with one common goal—improving patient outcomes.  AAMI also produces expert and objective information on medical technology and related processes and issues.  AAMI is not an advocacy organization and prides itself on the objectivity of its work.

About AAMI’s Wireless Strategy Task Force:
AAMI’s Wireless Strategy Task Force (WSTF) was formed to help implement the priorities identified during the AAMI Wireless Workshop held in the fall of 2012.  Those priorities include clarifying roles and responsibilities in the wireless arena, managing spectrum to improve safety and security, designing wireless infrastructure for high reliability, learning from other industries, and managing risk and preventing failure. The WSTF—which is comprised of manufacturers, regulators, users of technology, and other interested parties—is developing educational resources and tools and sharing best practices to address wireless challenges in healthcare. Many of the resources included in this compilation were written by members of the WSTF. For more information about the WSTF, contact Steve Campbell at scampbell@aami.org.
