Chief Transformation Officer
Michigan Medicine
As the Chief Transformation Officer on Michigan Medicine’s Executive Leadership team, Amy Cohn brings her expertise in engineering techniques to improve operations and problem solving in the health care area. She leads a health care operational engineering team that collaborates with executive leadership to define project priorities, provide rapid response to critical operational events, and improve outcomes by studying and implementing process re-design and enhancements. In 2020, Cohn played a critical role in scaling and implementing COVID-19 testing and vaccinations on the U-M campus and at Michigan Medicine. She has also been an instrumental leader in the evolution of the ResponsiBLUE app to ensure safety as employees and students access our campuswide facilities. Her ability to drive large and complex projects, many new to the organization, and her unique engineering perspective were the predominant factors that led Michigan Medicine to create the chief transformation officer appointment. In addition, Amy Cohn is an Alfred F. Thurnau Professor in the Department of Industrial and Operations Engineering at the University of Michigan, where she also holds an appointment in the Department of Health Management and Policy in the School of Public Health. Dr. Cohn is the Associate Director of the Center for Healthcare Engineering and Patient Safety (CHEPS).
