Certified Healthcare Technology Manager (CHTM) from AAMI

The objective of the AAMI Credentials Institute is to be the trusted source for quality professional development and credentials for healthcare technology-oriented professionals and entities in higher education, industry, and healthcare delivery.

As healthcare becomes more complex, certification is one way to assure the competence of practitioners. Healthcare technology professionals seek certification as a way of demonstrating professional accomplishment, mastery of skills, and experience in core competencies to provide trustworthy performance.

The healthcare technology manager is a person responsible for planning and directing the activities of other healthcare technology management professionals, monitoring their work, and taking corrective actions when necessary.

This HTM certification covers two major areas in healthcare technology management: the management of healthcare technology operations; and, the management of personnel. The functions of the manager include participation in the “leadership” of the business enterprise. The manager is also expected to have the skills and understanding of what is needed to perform strategic, business,  and change management as well as employee relations.

Recertification requirements for this certification are a combination of work experience and continuing education to demonstrate sustained competency and knowledge in the healthcare technology management field.
