IT professionals are hungry for information on emerging technologies and guidance on the integration of IT systems in healthcare, according to the results of a survey conducted by Chicago-based CE-IT Community.

According to the survey, respondents requested that the following CE-IT issues be addressed:
· Integration of systems/devices in a multi-vendor environment.
· Developing an IT infrastructure to adequately support medical technology.
· Recommendations and guidance on implementing new technologies, including wireless systems. · Guidance on FDA regulations.

The CE-IT is a coalition of three national associations including the Arlington, Va.-based Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI), the Plymouth, Pa.-based American College of Clinical Engineering (ACCE), and the Chicago-based Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS).
