is optimizing search results in its database. For 2012 “we tried to match on name and email address,” Niesen said. “But that didn’t work because email addresses change all the time. Now we’re going to do name, email, city, state, country—any or all of those. It’s a wider parameter of search, so someone search- ing for co-authors will have more options.”


‘LessonsWere Learned’ In the end, the new submission process “took much more staff time and much more staff this time around. The membership department, switchboard, customer service, and almost all of the people in the convention and meeting-services department were helping out at one time or another,” Niesen said, noting that AAOS has already begun talking to Coe-Truman about next year’s abstracts. “The meetings we are having with Coe-Truman and our IT department willmake the process seamless in the next few years.”


58 pcmaconvene January 2012 Susan McSorley,AAOS’s director of convention and meeting


services, agrees. “Coe-Truman has been a good partner,” she said. “Lessons were learned in communication with submitters since this was a new process of submitting an abstract as well as dis- closing for the presenter and all co-authors.We have identified and worked through the areas that created challenges and look forward to utilizing the system for next year.” Coe-Trumanalso was “very happy with the way [the project]


turned out, despite any hiccups along the way,” said Jon Jenk- ins, Coe-Truman’s director of product management and devel- opment, who was one of the senior architects of the AAOS project. “Any time you go through the same process more than once, you drive efficiency. I would be very worried if we didn’t. If we got it perfect the first time I would argue that we are not working hard enough to improve.” 
