We’ve seen emergency visits dramatically increase in the past five years and they will continue to increase, despite the Affordable Care Act.
Fort Washington, PA (PRWEB) May 19, 2016
Every year in the United States, more than 134 million people visit an emergency department* seeking treatment for acute illnesses or injuries that require immediate medical attention. Staying current on best practices for treating patients and managing the emergency department is of critical importance to emergency physicians and allied healthcare professionals. The Pulse of Emergency Medicine, an educational series jointly sponsored by the American College of Emergency Physicians and ReachMD, provides key insights from medical experts across the field.
“This is an incredibly important time in the emergency department,” said Dean Wilkerson, MBA, JD, CAE, and Executive Director of the American College of Emergency Physicians. “We’ve seen emergency visits dramatically increase in the past five years and they will continue to increase, despite the Affordable Care Act. Ensuring physicians are well prepared is key to effectively managing patients and their departments.”
The series on ReachMD is hosted by ReachMD’s Matt Birnholz, MD, and features interviews with thought leaders on eight topics:
1. When Disaster Strikes: Challenges in Security Funds for Disaster
2. Engaging Younger Physicians in Emergency Medicine’s Future
3. The Rise of Clinical Research in Emergency Medicine
4. The Next Evolution of Medical Simulations: Updates from ACEP's InnovatED
5. Health Care in Financial Crisis: Are Emergency Medicine Models the Answer?
6. Envisioning the Emergency Department of Tomorrow: ACEP's InnovatED
7. Protecting the Brain After Cardiac Arrest: Research Discoveries from Past to Present
