  • College of Business professor Craig Froehle appointed to new department with international journal.

Craig Froehle, associate professor of operations management, has been named one of six senior editors for the Healthcare Operations department of the international journal, Production and Operations Management (POM). Listed among BusinessWeek's 20 premier journals, POM is the only major publication in the field of operations management to include a department focused on healthcare operations.

Froehle's research has long focused on improving the operational effectiveness of healthcare delivery systems, examining issues such as patient flow, patient and provider scheduling, facility layout and the design of the patient experience. He has worked with community partners including Cincinnati Children's Hospital, where he holds a joint faculty appointment, and contributed to journals such as POM, the Journal of Operations Management, Decision Sciences and the Journal of Service Research. He is a member of the Production and Operations Management Society (where he co-founded the College of Healthcare Operations Management in 2007), the Institute for Operations Research and Management Science (INFORMS) and the Decision Sciences Institute.
