The past, present, and future of emergency department (ED) care were recently explored in a briefing hosted by Health Affairs, and the entire event and other materials are now available free online.
The December 4 event brought experts together to focus on ED issues related to integrated networks of care, reinventing emergency care, quality management, access, cost/payment, and disaster preparedness. Among other topics, speakers addressed the increased need for more coordinated care that involves a wider range of health care professionals.
Health Affairs is a monthly journal focused on health policy.
