ED Management Solutions
In our nearly ten years of emergency department management, EMC has worked with partner hospitals to significantly improved upon objective metrics of ED success while investing sizable amounts of time and resources to increase patient referral bases. Working hand-in-hand with hospital leadership, we enhance emergency medicine physician staffing, obtain ED clinical and financial goals, and increase patient throughput while delivering exceptional clinical care and patient satisfaction.
Our consultants are physicians, nurses and administrators who understand the daily challenges of operating cost-efficient,
patient-focused emergency departments in a variety of clinical settings. On faculty at Harvard Medical School, our consultants are academic and clinical physicians who have hands-on experience dealing with the issues that your emergency department encounters daily.
One example of our work is found our valued client, Milton Hospital.
In the 5 months since we began managing the ED, we cut the "left
without being seen" rate in half (to below 1%), increased patient
satisfaction to the 99th percentile (measured by Press-Ganey), and
decreased patient turnaround times; all of this while growing ED patient
volume by over 15%. Read more about our managed EDs.
