How We Do It

Second, the implementation of interdepartmental, collaborative meetings centered around process improvement. Third, the delivery of quality care and a premier patient experience. Our end game is to attract physicians who will support the management and continuous improvement of the department.

Our Skills

Working as a Unit

As a boutique company, AEP has the ability to meet consistently with physicians and hospital management to maximize the alignment of all parties. Key performance and quality indicators are determined with the expectation to exceed all metrics.

Working With Data

AEP’s data-mining implementation offers the facility a wealth of information. Together, AEP and the hospital determine the metrics of interest and create, maintain and share dashboards with hospital management.

AEP’s ability to make the data as rich as needed allows the hospital to select as much information as required on a continual basis. Our analytics platform provides the data needed to streamline processes and drive interdepartmental collaboration.

Working Hand-in-Hand

AEP’s management works within the facility to refine all processes. Whether fine-tuning the staffing schedule or making changes to the patient flow model, the group is always part of the decision-making process. Because of our compartmentalization, we can react and make changes rapidly.

Working From Experience

AEP’s executive team brings years of expertise to the table. Because of our wealth of ED management experience, traditional roadblocks to success have already been identified and alleviated before the start of a new contract.

Our Values

The way we work is determined by our values, providing a framework that all of our stakeholders understand and respect. We actively encourage openness and make ourselves available to employees so they may discuss any issues.
