New Survey Structure

The AAAEM/AACEM Benchmark Survey is a cross-sectional survey of U.S. and Canadian allopathic academic emergency departments (EDs) and academic emergency medicine (EM) departments. The AAAEM/AACEM Benchmark Survey is administered annually through a series of questionnaires. Questionnaires are designed to solicit information about EM departments and individual EDs.

The FY2020 AAAEM/AACEM Benchmark Survey is composed of the following questionnaires:

  • Single ED Questionnaires:
    • Primary Academic ED Questionnaire
    • Academic Affiliate ED Questionnaire
    • Pediatric ED Questionnaire
    • Community ED Questionnaire
    • Freestanding ED Questionnaire
  • EM Department Questionnaire
  • Faculty Salary Questionnaire
  • APP Salary Questionnaire

Respondents from health systems with two or more EDs should complete a single ED questionnaire for each ED in their health system. To ensure data fidelity, respondents to single ED questionnaires will be asked to confirm that responses are reported for a single ED.

Questionnaires

Users with appropriate permissions are able to download a blank questionnaire, upload a completed questionnaire, and review responses to completed questionnaires through the Questionnaires menu found on the left side of Benchmark Survey Data Entry Portal.

From this menu you may review who last edited that questionnaire and when they last made edits, along with whether a questionnaire is complete or not. If your health system contains two or more EDs then you may find several single ED questionnaires, one for each ED in your health system. You also have the option to review responses to quickly identify which questions have not yet been answered and whether any questions have warnings based on a potentially invalid response.
