Chief Executive Officer
The Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) is a $15 million (annual) organization that leads global collaboration in the development, management, and effective use of health-related technology. Our community includes medical device manufacturers, regulators, clinicians, healthcare technology management (HTM) professionals, healthcare sterilization professionals, many of the world's largest technology firms, healthcare delivery organizations, and independent healthcare service organizations.
We improve patient safety by bringing together key stakeholders in a consensus-based process. We serve as the professional organization for health technology management and staff in the healthcare setting. When standards or needed tools don't exist, we find ways to develop them. AAMI is not an advocacy organization, but a trusted neutral convener - and the primary source of consensus standards for the medical device industry, as well as practical information, support, and guidance for healthcare technology professionals. We improve the effectiveness of medical technology through the development of standards, HTM member support, professional certification, education, summits, and other technical resources.
As Chief Executive Officer, you will advance a culture of openness and innovation, welcome change, and invite people from diverse viewpoints to come together. We believe in diversity of thought, perspective, and experience - it is at the very center of how we deliver value through collaboration. Your success in this role will flow from your ability to be an effective leader, identifying and bringing together key constituencies to solve complex issues. You will balance the organization's business needs with individual members' perspectives on the broader scientific consensus, and balance domestic and international points of view - knowing that some decisions will have a disparate impact on important constituencies. You'll explore new ways to collaborate with external organizations to increase the relevancy and impact of our work - advancing global standards and nurturing and developing the next generation of volunteer leaders.
Your interpersonal communication skills will be called upon in varied forums; our work informs the judgment of our members, regulators, clinicians, industry leaders, and front-line health technology professionals. You will serve as AAMI's principal spokesperson, maintaining regular contact with member organizations, regulators, industry, media, and the public. In this role, you will establish and nurture relationships with FDA, CMS, and other key regulatory agencies to ensure inclusion and further establish AAMI as an expert reference for those organizations.
You will engage our staff and volunteers in the shared vision for the future, refining AAMI's role in the health technology ecosystem. This is primarily a collaborative leadership role, drawing upon the unique collective expertise of more than 40 talented staff members and hundreds of committed volunteers. You will listen, learn, understand, synthesize, distill, and help create a framework for committed action. You will integrate and advance the work of AAMI's cross-disciplinary teams including standards, membership, education, certification, events management, publications, communications, marketing, and sales. In support of our shared vision, we anticipate that you will also lead the development of fair and transparent key performance metrics and measures of impact for the staff, tangibly demonstrating how everyone's work and involvement contribute to AAMI goals.
