The Healthcare Technology Foundation was founded on the principle that achieving improvement in the safe use of healthcare technology requires diverse stakeholders to come together in order to utilize their collective knowledge on the design, use, integration and servicing of healthcare technology, systems and devices.
The mission of HTF is to:
"Improve healthcare delivery outcomes by promoting the development, application and support of safe and effective healthcare technologies."
The Foundation supports:
- The promotion of excellence in clinical engineering leadership through research, education and certification
- Funding of related research and programs,
- Effective collaborations between medical device producers, regulators, users and clinical engineers,
- The creation of safety-related education material that is useful to members of the public
