Two prominent medical device organizations have announced a new collaboration to advance medical device cybersecurity practices across the entire medical device lifecycle. The Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) and the Archimedes Center for Medical Device Security will work together to connect their networks of medical device and health technology management (HTM) professionals across the country.
“We appreciate how AAMI represents thousands of experts in healthcare technology, sterilization, and medical device manufacturing,” says Michigan’s Kevin Fu, chief scientist and founder of the Archimedes Center. “The Archimedes cybersecurity collaboration with AAMI will help us to significantly grow our broader impact on society for trustworthy, safe, and effective delivery of healthcare.”
AAMI is a nonprofit community of over 9,000 experts, hospitals, and medical device manufacturers working to support the healthcare community in the development, management, and use of safe and effective health technology. Founded in 1967, the organization is the primary source of consensus standards, both national and international, for the medical device industry, as well as practical information, support, and guidance for health technology and sterilization professionals.
