Expert Shares Strategic Technology Planning Tips

The recent ICE webinar “Beyond the Technical – Strategic Technology Planning for Medical Imaging” was presented by Carol Davis-Smith, president of Carol Davis-Smith & Associates and the vice chair of clinical engineering for the AAMI Board of Directors.

Davis-Smith has 30 years of experience in academic and not-for-profit medical centers, group purchasing, consulting and executive leadership. She holds a master’s degree from the University of Arizona and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Dayton. She is a certified clinical engineer and a fellow in the American College of Clinical Engineering (FACCE) and the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMIF).

In this session, Davis-Smith moved beyond the technical service assessment and focused on the clinical and business assessments important to an optimal strategic technology plan. She reviewed the entire process and the supporting resources to ensure everyone understands how all the perspectives work together. Attendees left the session with insights to initiate or enhance the strategic technology planning process within their organization.

The webinar was popular with almost 100 people registered for the session. Attendees provided feedback via a post-webinar survey that included the question, “Overall, how satisfied were you with today’s webinar?”
