On behalf of the organizers and sponsors of the 3rd International Clinical Engineering and Health Technology Management Congress (ICEHTMC) it is our honor to offer this publication that contains all of the accepted abstracts for the oral and poster sessions. With the amazing support from the Scientific Program Committee, consisting of several dozen reviewers from all over the world, all the submissions were subjected to strict peer review and the event has broken all previous CE congresses’ records for quality and quantity.
Major recognition must be given to the Italian Clinical Engineers Association (AIIC) and IFMBE/Clinical Engineering Division (CED) for hosting and collaborating on the organization of this event and for engaging early on practitioners around the world to respond to the Call for Papers and vendors to exhibit their ware.
This is also the first time that the Congress’s proceedings are published and available in print and on-line (GlobalCE.org). The Global Clinical Engineering Journal’s commitment to the promotion and sharing of knowledge is evident by committing to and the timely accomplishment of this major task.
