Dear colleagues and friends,
This is the third event of the International Clinical Engineering and Health Technology Management Congress, a great opportunity to bring together global experts, biomedical and clinical engineers, academics, politicians and decision makers, representatives of the medtech industry and all those involved with the wide variety of health technologies that are shaping the way healthcare is being delivered today and in the future.
The congress, organized by the Clinical Engineering Division of IFMBE, will cover a wide spectrum of topics, from clinical risk management to health technology assessment, from ICT and medical informatics to international standards and regulations, from maintenance and health operations to the development of innovative devices, and many others. The overall goal of the event is to drive an open discussion to share experiences and best practices on the global impact that health technologies have on healthcare quality and effectiveness in different settings; we’re building an exciting program with worldwide experts and key opinion leaders, and we’re looking forward to great contributions from everyone as posted in the call for abstracts and student competition.
Italy is proud to have been selected to host this event; after the great success of Hangzhou, China and Sao Paulo, Brazil, Rome is now ready to welcome all participants and invited guests. Social events and initiatives will add to the congress experience and we encourage everyone to spend a few more days with us in the Eternal City.
