The Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) Conference and Expo is a big stage for conversations about innovation, advancements and security for medical equipment. Our team recently attended the 2018 expo in Long Beach, CA, and we were thrilled to mingle with like-minded industry professionals who share our interests in the advancement of medical instrumentation.
Capital expenditures for healthcare equipment totaled more than $350 billion in 2016, according to Harbor Research.

In my role as the Healthcare Solutions Specialist for Glassbeam I've had the opportunity to meet with a wide range of Glassbeam customers and partners.

As the Head of Sales at Glassbeam, nothing gives me more pleasure than a face to face meeting, where the customer is telling me how Glassbeam Analytics is helping them save money. While there are so many metrics that can measure the health of an account or the ’Happiness index’ of a customer, nothing beats this: “John, last week, your product avoided a $10,000 quench event!” That’s music to anyone’s ears, especially a Sales guy.
