The Italian Association of Clinical Engineers (AIIC), founded in Milan in 1993, has the institutional purpose of protecting the figure of the Clinical Engineer by helping to spread Clinical Engineering Services within healthcare companies as an element of governance of Biomedical Technologies.
The first post-COVID-19 goal for our country is to re-establish the National Health System. This is the only way to guarantee services, quality, system dynamism, real innovation and the ability to adapt to needs. All this will be possible thanks to guaranteed economic resources under the PNRR and the availability of all the stakeholders. In practice, we will have the perfect opportunity to move towards a new NHS: we cannot waste it.
AIIC 2021: an event to restart the NHS.
This is why AIIC for its 21st National Convention wanted to involve all the stakeholders of Italian health - the world of politics, health institutions, representatives of the regions, citizens and patient associations, scientiﬁc societies, academics and researcher - for an accurate analysis of the current NHS and how it is possible to "lead" it towards a real quality and technological innovation system. Always with health needs and real professionalism at the center.
