ACUTE CARE, INC.
supports the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP. www.acep.org
As the preeminent organization representing the clinical practice of Emergency Medicine, ACEP provides ACUTE CARE, INC. access to opportunities for collaboration and learning, and advocates for the speciality in a direct and impactful manner.
While ACUTE CARE, INC.‘s relationship takes many forms, our participation in the rural, telemedicine, and workforce sections exemplifies the value of membership and opportunity for mutual learning and collaboration. Smaller, targeted interest groups like the aforementioned sections provide a platform for an exchange of information with experts in the field on an ongoing basis.
Our work with the rural section led to an opportunity to present that perspective at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation Center (CMMI) in Washington, DC.
ACEP’s advocacy on behalf of the specialty pairs nicely with our relationship with, and support for, the Emergency Department Practice Management Association (EDPMA, addressed in an earlier post in this series). ACEP has been at the forefront of critical efforts to secure Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), advocate effectively for fair reimbursement, and ensure mental health support for front line caregivers.
The ACEP team provides resources and educational support to EDPMA’s education efforts, led, in part, by our Chief Operating Officer, Paul Hudson. ACEP’s online member community, EngagED, has served as a valuable peer-to-peer information exchange during the pandemic.
Our President and CEO, Dr. Mark Menadue, is a Fellow of the college, and has served on ACEP’s Reimbursement Committee
ACUTE CARE, INC. supports the American College of Emergency Physicians, and believes membership in that organization is worthy of clinicians’ and supporting professionals’ consideration.
