WHEREAS: WHEREAS:
WHEREAS: WHEREAS: WHEREAS : THEREFORE:

As medical technology advances, hospitals, treatment centers, and other health care facilities must continue to keep pace by providing quality, well-trained personnel capable of understanding the complexity of medical equipment operation and applications; and
Modern health care relies heavily upon sophisticated medical equipment, as well as people, for the best treatment available. Diagnostic instruments such as pacemakers, patient monitors, defibrillators, EKG units, diagnostic laboratories, X-ray machines, MRis, nuclear medicines, and other imaging systems help establish quality care. Life support medical devices such as anesthesia systems, ventilators, and heart-lung and dialysis machines provide life sustaining functions to patients; and
Proper patient diagnosis and care depends upon a team of professionals dedicated to providing this quality comprehensive health care. Additionally, health care costs may be controlled by effectively selecting and repairing medical equipment by qualified biomedical/clinical engineering professionals; and
Healthcare technology management professionals have the level of education, experience, competence, and dedication needed to work with physicians, clinicians, administrators, and other personnel regarding the ever-advancing technology of modrn health care equipment; and
These professionals research, recommend, install, inspect, repair, calibrate, and modify medical devices, critical life support systems, computerized imaging, and other complicated medical systems. They also advise and train others concerning physiological principles and the practical, safe clinical application of complex medical devices; now
I, NATHAN DEAL, Governor of the State of Georgia, do hereby proclaim May 17-23, 2015, as HEALTHCARE TECHNOLOGY MANAGEMENT PROFESSIONAL APPRECIATION WEEK in Georgia and urge the citizens of the state to acknowledge and give proper recognition to this profession for maintaining a high standard of quality health care for our citizens.
