This has been a time of incredible suffering, of new challenges, and also unprecedented opportunity for the clinical engineering (CE)/health technology (HT) global community to come together and share experiences – as well as learned and improvised best practices – for medical device management and related tools used to address the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of C19. CED provides this information at no charge to its global network of over 15,000 CE/HT colleagues.
