In forming a Healthcare Engineering alliance, our goal is to promote communication, interaction and collaboration among the following: 

  • the healthcare/biomedical-related sectors of different engineering organizations,

  • the engineering/technology-related sectors of different healthcare/medicine organizations, 

  • the healthcare industry, and

  • the healthcare sector of the government.

We seek to develop cooperation agreement with these entities to promote and facilitate a free exchange of technical, scientific and professional knowledge, closer professional links among the organizations, and professional enhancement and lifelong learning for our members.
