On October 4, 5 and 6, the 40th Hospital Engineering Seminar – National Congress will be held in A Coruña.
One more year, and this will be the fourth, Galicia will host the event, with the city of the Tower of Hercules once again being the chosen city after 36 years.
From the Organizing Committee, formed by the Spanish Association of Hospital Engineering (AEIH), and Cotehga, the Commission of Hospital Technicians of García, they affirm that the health system, after years of development, absorbs a very considerable part of the GDP. of Western countries.
In this context, it seems time to apply circular economy criteria such as a greater contribution from renewable energies, more comprehensive recycling or the use of local resources.
That will be one of the keys to the 40th edition of this event in which professionals from the sector will share their knowledge, research, innovations, experiences and projects, through presentations, communications or discussion tables.
The Hospital Engineering Seminar, a highly recognized fair at the national level
After the successful 38th edition, held in Gijón, and the 39th in Valencia, this trade fair is the ideal place to learn about the latest ideas in development, technological innovations and opportunities for improvement within the field of engineering dedicated to healthcare.
This unavoidable forum in the national health panorama has taken on the challenge of playing a key role within the hospital sector.
The meeting is based on two of the objectives, models and tools without which the management of new healthcare models cannot be understood: innovation and evolution.
The consolidation of a vital event for hospital engineering
The AEIH Congress has positioned itself as a highly solid event in scientific and social aspects, both for participants and for companies and commercial firms, offering a unique opportunity to be in contact with the majority of professionals with responsibility in the hospitals of Spain.
In this way, the Hospital Engineering Seminar has become an unmissable event for all professionals in the sector.
In this national congress, with high attendance and a scientific/technical program, personalities of recognized prestige at the national and international level will participate.
Not in vain, the event offers the opportunity to learn about new ideas in development, technological innovations and opportunities for improvement within the field of engineering dedicated to healthcare.
The role of the Spanish Association of Hospital Engineering
The AEIH, in addition to assuming the organization of this important congress, is a non-profit entity whose objective is “the dissemination of technical and scientific knowledge among the Community of Health Engineering and Architecture Professionals, responsible for providing the best Services. “Sanitary to Society”.
Its activity dates back to 1987 and the organization is financed exclusively by the fees of its members, the proceeds of its publications and the organization of events such as an annual congress and various technical conferences.
What topics will be addressed in the Hospital Engineering Seminar?
The Scientific Committee of the 40th Hospital Engineering Seminar has reserved a part of the Official Scientific Program for the free participation of professionals and companies that wish to disseminate and share their experiences and knowledge within the fields of hospital engineering and architecture and biomedical equipment.
In order to guide the technical and scientific sessions, the scientific committee has proposed the following thematic areas that, currently, maintain the interest and concern of Hospital Engineering professionals:
- Blue economy
- Engineering services and management systems
- Biomedical engineering
- Artificial intelligence
- Healthcare architecture
- Sustainability, energy efficiency and environment
- Air quality and environmental safety
- Medical gases
- Human resources management in engineering
What are hospital engineering seminars?
These types of events bring together health professionals, engineers, architects, medical technology providers and other experts in the hospital field.
Engineering seminars usually have as their main objective to discuss topics related to the planning, design, construction, maintenance and management of hospital facilities.
Likewise, some of the common topics that can be discussed in these seminars are:
- Hospital Planning and Design
Discussions on how to plan and design efficient and safe hospital facilities for patients and medical staff.
- Medical technology
Presentation of the latest innovations in medical equipment and how to effectively integrate them into the hospital environment.
- Safety and maintenance
Discussions about facility safety, including fire prevention systems, electrical safety, and hospital waste management, as well as the importance of preventative maintenance.
- Energy efficiency and sustainability
How to make hospitals more energy efficient and how to adopt sustainable practices in resource management.
- Hospital Management
Discussion on best practices in hospital management, including process optimization and supply chain management.
- Rules and Regulations
Updates on rules and regulations affecting hospital facilities and how to comply with them.
- Case studies and practical experiences
Presentation of success stories and challenges faced in the implementation of hospital projects.
Therefore, seminars such as the 40th National Congress of Hospital Engineering are often valuable opportunities for learning, collaboration and networking between professionals in the healthcare and hospital engineering sectors.
