ACUTE CARE, INC. supports the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP’s) Saving Millions campaign. This campaign is designed to promote the value of emergency medicine to policymakers and to the general public. Campaign tools include print ads, a video, and animated infographic.
Patient satisfaction with emergency care is high, according to a new poll by Morning Consult that found more than three in four people (79 percent) reported being satisfied with their most recent emergency department visits. Eighty percent said they trusted emergency rooms to provide patients with high-quality care, and nearly three in four people correctly said that emergency physicians are medical experts who are residency trained and board certified.
In celebration of its 50th anniversary, the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP), the organization instrumental in developing the specialty of emergency medicine, re-released a video to educate the public about emergency physicians and what they do.
“We are all a heartbeat away from needing emergency care” is one of the key messages of the Saving Millions campaign, highlighting the incredible value of emergency medicine to every community and the efficiency and economic benefits of medical care provided in the nation’s emergency departments.
