AAMI timeline of events leading up to 50th anniversary

From the May 2017 issue of DOTmed HealthCare Business News magazine
In the 50-plus years that AAMI has been in existence, the organization has had but three presidents and CEOs. This steady stewardship accounts for, in many ways, the progress and growth the organization has achieved to help health care technology management professionals become an integral part of the health delivery system. The following are some of the many achievements and milestones AAMI has been proud to be a part of.

  • 1967 — AAMI, which had been created by Robert D. Hall and Robert J. Allen — who were in the advertising business and worked for high-tech companies in the Boston area — underwent an organizational shake-up, setting it on a path to become the association it is today.

  • 1969 — Mike Miller was hired as AAMI’s first executive director.

  • 1969 — AAMI held “A National Conference on Medical Devices,” supported by funding from the National Institutes of Health.

  • 1970 — AAMI presented its electrical safety exhibit, “Seven Steps to Electrical Safety,” for the first time at the 1970 annual meeting of the American College of Cardiology in New Orleans.
