Objectives of AAMI's Maintenance Practices Task Force

Objectives of AAMI’s Maintenance Practices Task Force.

  1. Develop, and gain community-wide acceptance for, a scientifically sound but simple to understand RCM-based methodology for determining which types of medical devices are actually made safer by periodic planned maintenance - along with a simple explanation of why routine PM fails to improve the safety of the great majority of medical devices.
  2. Develop guidelines and tools to facilitate a rational optimization of PM programs for medical devices, including a standardized format for the maintenance documentation required to support the analytical methods being proposed.
  3. Create a community-wide database to provide a substantial body of quantitative evidence to support the proposed RCM-based optimization.
  4. Build up a collection of information on each device’s demonstrated level of PM-related reliability and safety based on aggregated maintenance data for each specific manufacturer - model version of the different types of device
