AAMI kicked off Standards Week with new training programs for committee members and staff. How it works, who can participate, the publications processes , etc. were all big discussions at the training. Everyone walked away with a greater understanding of the entire department and standards development process.
Another huge improvement in the standards process is the move to our new online standards management platform powered by Kavi. This platform far exceeds the previous database capabilities, and will allow user-friendly document management, commenting, balloting, and all the other functions of standards development.
At AAMI Standards Week, two training sessions were offered and nearly half of all the attendees sat in and received the training. While we have only migrated data for all the committees meeting this week, the feedback is extremely positive and everyone is looking forward to accessing all the other committee work in the near future.
AAMI is working hard on the transition from the old database to this new online platform, and I encourage all committee members to stay tuned. We hope to have all committees moved over by January.
