Operations Management Committee

Who We Are

Committee Focus

  • Create a resource catalog for operations management best practice processes: Collect operational best practices and make them available as a resource tool for groups interested in these initiatives.
  • Create a data warehouse for ED metrics and operational benchmarks: Make available operational data to AAEMs members and including  soliciting AAEM membership for data to populate the warehouse.
  • Author an educational series in Common Sense: Produce an educational article of interest to the general membership in every issue of Common Sense from one of our committee members, many of whom have deep experience in process improvement in the area of operations management.
  • Produce educational sessions for AAEM scientific assemblies: Develop a lecture series within the arena of operations management and process improvement as a thread weaving its way through each AAEM Annual Scientific Assembly.
  • Implement an operations management workshop for the AAEM Scientific Assembly: This is another high-value objective. Workshops like this represent the best in an applied science approach to a host of theoretical concepts in operations management. A related objective is a quarterly operational excellence activity hosted a various sites around the country.
  • Create an active communications network: Through the use of social and professional networks including listserves, facilitate the exchange of concepts and ideas for enlightened solutions to operational issues in our emergency departments.
