    Hi Everyone!

    HTM Week is right around the corner and AAMI has some fun contests and events planned! HTM Week 2020 will be May 17th - May 23rd. AAMI will be hosting two educational webinars and a "HTM Funny Story" and "Department Creative Photo" contest. To learn more, check out the attached HTM Week Toolkit. The HTM Week Toolkit contains everything you need to plan a fun week for you and your staff!

    Registration for the 2020 HTM Week Webinars is already live:

    Precision of Healthcare and the Internet of Things (Tuesday, May 19 from 2–3:00 p.m. ET). Experts from GE Healthcare will present about the future of precision medicine. How will interconnectivity and wireless technology, combined with analytics, cloud, and edge computing, change patient care? What does "applied intelligence" actually mean, and how could it make healthcare cheaper and more efficient?  Register Here!

    Medical Devices on Your Network: Assessing and Understanding the Risks (Thursday, May 21, 2–3:00 p.m. ET). Cybersecurity experts from MedSec will explain two topics: 1) Using pre-purchase risk assessments to better assess and manage what is brought onto your network and how to best identify security risk controls and 2) Information to collect from your vendors and how to interpret it, including MDS2 (Manufacturers Disclosure Statement for Medical Device Security), and SBOM (Software Bill of Materials). Register Here!

    HTM Week Contests:

    HTM "Funny Story" Contest
    Some HTM professionals have a legendary sense of humor. Now's your chance to tell us your funniest story from your career in HTM! Just send a short "selfie" video (less than 1:30) or write a brief essay (under 500 words). Your funny HTM story could be an unforgettable interaction with a clinician, an oddball fix to a medical device that you found, a joke or prank that someone played, or anything on the job that had your colleagues rolling on the floor. Entries should be "clean" and not political. The top three entries will split $500 in prizes. Email your entries to by April 30th, 2020.

    HTM Department Creative Photo Contest
    Send us creative photos to showcase the important work of your HTM department, and we'll feature them throughout the HTM Week on social media! We want to see your team in action, so no "class photos." AAMI will buy lunch for the department with the best photo. If you share on social media, be sure to use the #HTMWeek and #IamHTM hashtags. Email your photo to by the end of HTM Week (May 22, 2020).
