Three AIMBE Fellows created and lead an extensive global COVID-19 (C19) information and training program. The global Coronavirus pandemic (C19) is a crisis that demands agile worldwide response, not only by countries and their health systems, but also by most individuals on the planet. 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.
In response to this crisis and the World Health Organization (WHO’s) request in March 2020, three AIMBE Fellows launched a program of free global webinars and information tools sharing clinical engineering (CE) learnings related to the COVID19 pandemic… Continue reading.
WASHINGTON, D.C.—The American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) has announced the induction of Thomas Judd, MS, PE, CCE, CPHQ, CPHIMS, FACCE, FHIMSS, Associate Editor, Health IT and Quality, The Permanente Journal, Kaiser Permanente, to its College of Fellows.
Election to the AIMBE College of Fellows is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to a medical and biological engineer. The College of Fellows is comprised of the top two percent of medical and biological engineers. College membership honors those who have made outstanding contributions to “engineering and medicine research, practice, or education” and to “the pioneering of new and developing fields of technology, making major advancements in traditional fields of medical and biological engineering, or developing/implementing innovative approaches to bioengineering education.”
Mr. Judd was nominated, reviewed, and elected by peers and members of the College of Fellows for “demonstrated leadership in national and global healthcare systems, developing world-class hospital teams, and clinical engineering and health informatics societies.”
