2 What is the MTPC? The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is the worlds largest technical professional organization with over 365,000 members worldwide IEEE – USA began as United States Activities Committee in 1973 to focus on policy issues specific to the USA The Medical Technology Policy Committee (MTPC) provides a central focal point to bring the many interests of IEEE-USA to bear on national policy issues such as health care and wellness. The primary objective of the MTPC is utilizing the professional and technical knowledge of IEEE members to assist in the rational formulation of medical technology legislation, regulation, and policy.
