    This weekend I had the pleasure to attend the AAMI Exchange.  I attended a session on Saturday titled "Best Practices of Multi-Hospital System-Based HTM Programs", was surprised by what the panel presented, which leads to my question.  What percentage of your medical device inventory has a schedule preventive maintenance?

    For non-imaging I think we were around 25-30% of the equipment was routinely inspected. Your AEM should drive this with data from your CMMS. We were able to eliminate patient monitoring, pulse oximeters, thermometers, etc from routine maintenance.
