  • What is HTM

    Health Technology Management, a new moniker for Biomedical and Clinical Engineering departments.

    Admittedly, when I first ran across this acronym my thoughts where, “Great just what this field needs, another name”. If not being able to decide if we where Biomedical Departments or Clinical Engineering Departments wasn’t bad enough lets start calling our field something altogether different.

    After attended a recent AAMI sponsored webinar HTM Leadership. I had to rethink the whole subject.

  • AAMI Resources

    AAMI’s Technology Management Council (TMC) sponsers the National HTM (Health Technology Management) Week.

    This AAMI webpage list some resources for Health Technology Management Week

    AAMI stands for Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation, and is dedicated to advancing safety in medical technology.

    HTM (Health Technology Management) is a new name being adopted by many progressive Biomed/Clinical Engineering Departments see this article for more information.

  • Letter from the President 2011

    The cornerstone for ACCES was laid in November of 2006. We began with a meeting of interested CE professionals hosted in Moncton. This visionary group became the foundation team which launched regional discussions in 2006. These conversations evolved and grew through 2007. The 2008 spring conference in Newfoundland was followed by our incorporation as the Atlantic Canada Clinical Engineering Society in the late summer of 2008.

  • 2012 Conference Announcement

    It’s official! ACCES17 / CMBES35 Joint Conference 2012 will take place in Halifax from June 19th to the 22nd. This will be a joint conference with the Canadian Medical and Biological Engineering Society and Atlantic Canada Clinical Engineering Society held at the Westin Hotel near Pier 21.

  • Letter from the President 2010

    The Atlantic Canada Clinical Engineering Society (ACCES) officially came to exist in April 2008. 

    As ACCES’s first president I am pleased to have the opportunity to recognize the efforts of the many volunteers who worked behind the scenes for those first 18 months before our official launch. Without their support and vision this would not have been possible.  I would especially like to thank the team in Moncton, and particularly Paul Auffrey for his dedication and determination which launched and continually delivered the Moncton Biomedical Conference for more than a decade.

    As part of Biomed they set up a the following display outside the Cafeteria.

    Special Thanks to Mike Smith and Zandra Rubinger.

  • Clinical Engineering Week 2008

    A Great Success

    The first ever national Clinical Engineering week was announced by the Canadian Medical and Biological Engineering Society (CMBES) this past winter. The week is intended to recognize the biomedical engineering technologists, technicians, clinical engineers and other medical technology professional that uniquely serve Canadian healthcare and patients. The inaugural week dates, March 1-8, were chosen to coincide with National Engineering week.
