American Association of Clinical Directors

Rooted in the belief that anesthesiologists are the uniquely qualified physicians within the hospital who have expertise in all operational areas of the hospital both clinically and administratively, the AACD is committed to helping all members and institutions leverage our unique perspectives and global view to improve operational processes for those whom we serve. Because we serve with the unique ability to coordinate operational activities in the operating rooms, intensive care units, nontraditional anesthetizing locations, and with the advent of perioperative surgical home, traditional med-surg floors, data driven improvements in efficiency will contribute to superior patient care and safety as well as secondary financial stewardship for each institution.

Society for Complex Acute Illness

We formed SCAI because we believe passionately that complex systems approaches, involving modeling, simulation, systems biology, chaos theory, and network theory can augment the classical, hypothesis-driven approach that has largely failed to stem the tide of critical illness.

We are clinicians, bench scientists, and modelers. We work in hospitals, research institutions, and companies. We have made large strides in modeling inflammation and organ dysfunction. Our work has been funded both by government and business, and has been presented in major scientific meetings.
