Welcome to the Bay Area Association of Medical Instrumentation!


The Bay Area Association of Medical Instrumentation,(formerly known as Suncoast Biomedical Society) was founded in the 1990's, by a group of Biomed technicians and Clinical engineers to serve the Tampa Bay area (Tampa, Clearwater, St. Petersburg).  Since re-established in 2005, BAAMI has been helping the local Biomedical Technicians to be better prepared by exchanging information, ideas and technical training during monthly meetings and other fun activities.

March 2019 Meeting


We are extending an invitation to our March 2019 meeting to you and your fellow biomeds.

Cyber Security in Healthcare

"Cyber Security is an increasingly important topic among healthcare professionals. With sensitive patient data being shared across a number of networks and devices, there is continuously heightened risk for data breaches".

"VasoTechnology is a Tampa based IT organization that specializes in the healthcare industry. Our sister organization, VasoHealthcare, is the largest U.S. based reseller of GE modality units. We partner with them to offer various radiology applications, in addition to traditional IT services, to their customer base. Because of this we have an extensive knowledge of device and network security in the healthcare field. In addition, we have a Tampa based 24/7/365 security operation center (SOC) that works as a resource for our customers to ensure the safety of patient images and sensitive data."

Join us on Thursday, March 21 at 6:30 pm to learn about some of the risks that are out there as well as how you can work to protect your healthcare data from a security breach.  Invite your fellow IT and Digital Imaging coworkers!
