August 23, 2022
The Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) has launched a new online platform as a resource for the health technology, medical device and sterilization communities. That platform, called AAMI ARRAY, functions as a “one-stop shop” for accessing AAMI’s journal content, industry news and association updates, and up-to-date standards, guidance documents and books. AAMI ARRAY launched on Monday, July 18.
“An ‘array’ is defined as an impressive display of a particular type of thing, and we want AAMI ARRAY to be that impressive display for our resources on health technology and medical device safety,” says Stephanie Rizk, vice president of brand and technology at AAMI. “AAMI ARRAY serves as the new backbone of our digital library of content and allows AAMI members and customers to access the best resources we have to offer in one single platform. You can find it all with one click at AAMI ARRAY.”
Specifically, AAMI ARRAY serves as a hub for:
- Standards, technical information reports and consensus reports
- AAMI News articles and features
- Books and specialty publications
- Scholarly articles from BI&T, AAMI’s peer-reviewed journal of health technology and sterilization
- AAMI blog and multimedia content
Starting at the home page, visitors can find a curated list of news about AAMI, the medical device and health technology industry, in-depth features, and personal stories from professionals. All content is organized by key topics, including sterilization, cybersecurity, health IT, and AI/machine learning. With a single keyword search, users can explore what AAMI has published on that topic, whether in a peer-reviewed journal, a guidance document, a newsarticle, or a blog post.
Each content type has its own set of filters so visitors can easily narrow in on what they are looking for. Readers can find a series of key topic links at the top of the page. By clicking on these, visitors will be taken to a search results page of stories also about that topic.
By logging in, users can also access their personal profile in My ARRAY, which lists all content they receive as part of their member benefits, publications they’ve purchased and their individual and enterprise eSubscription content items. Users can sign up to receive email alerts when new content is published about important key words, access saved searches and ‘favorite’ content items for later reference, and share links to content items with their colleagues.
