As the impact of healthcare reform on the U.S. delivery system comes into focus, there is little doubt that it is a “game changer” for clinical engineering and biomedical equipment technology. Carol will describe and discuss the future of the CE and BMET professions under new regulations and a new payment system. She will address why medical devices will cost much more, why equipment must have longer life cycles, why CEs and BMETs will and must have more involvement in IT-related activities, how CEs’ and BMETs’ responsibilities in regulatory compliance will expand and how you can prepare for this new environment.
