1. Historical figures who contributed to medicine and medical technology.

2. Articles about life on campus as a BMET student.

3. Medical device, theory of operation, maintenance strategies, or troubleshooting.

4. History of medical devices (my favorite).
5. Game master (games or puzzles related to medical technology).

6. Applied Science (Computer science, Physics, biology, chemistry, as applied to BMET, CE).

7. Certification review articles (CBET, CLES, CRES, CCE, CET exams).

8. Biomedical Equipment Networking to include security.

Also, writing T.M.S. articles helps you:

  • Increase your visibility with peers

  • Receive points towards certification

AAMI Invites Comments on CMS Maintenance Announcement

AAMI is inviting comments and recommendations from interested parties on a recent U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announcement that manufacturer-recommended maintenance frequencies are required for all equipment critical to patient health and safety.

The comments, which can be submitted here, will help guide the next steps of an informal coalition of interested parties that was formed to discuss the Dec. 2 announcement, which was greeted with dismay by many hospital-based healthcare technology management professionals.

The full CMS memorandum is available here (PDF).

E2L Database


Title Search Mission Complete!

After conducting an extensive survey of those in the medical equipment and technology service/support field, we would like to announce that BIOMED was selected by an overwhelming majority as a standardized title for our profession.

META will use Biomed as its official designation for those professionals in the medical equipment and technology service/support field. This will help to eliminate the confusion of different professional titles used by so many in the field and increase our profession's exposure to the public, helping to drive interest in the field and generate future growth.
