Conference Sessions New HTM Roles In An Evolving Technological Environment
Understand there is an existing need for new HTM roles and responsibilities within an ever evolving technological environment within Healthcare.
Analyze the three types of demands and responsibilities within a structured HTM department.
Apply a methodical restructuring and creation of new roles and job titles to efficiently meet the demands of both the technological and clinical landscapes.
In an ever-evolving technological landscape, the existing roles and responsibilities within HTM may not be efficiently meeting the new demands within the healthcare environment.
Our department was originally structured with 6 roles; a director, assistant director, manager, lead biomed tech, certified biomed tech and biomed tech. As technology advanced while the roles remained the same, we experienced inefficient allocation of overlapping responsiblities. It rendered the need to reassess and create new job roles and titles within the department. We determined there are three types of categorical focuses: Leadership, project and operations. We created 7 new roles, totaling 13 titles.
