CORPORATE PROFILEAs the nation's leading integrated service solution for comprehensive Emergency Department management, EmCare currently works with nearly 300 hospitals. This experience allows us to continually refine best practices in operational benchmarking.Quality physician leadership is the crux of our business. EmCare physician leaders include past presidents of national and state ACEP, while others have authored state reforms and chaired committees on issues involving Emergency Medicine in their communities.EmCare devotes considerable time and resources to physician support services, including:Medical Director Selection and EducationAssigning Regional Medical Directors to support Site Medical DirectorsEducational conferencesProfessional Liability InsurancePerformance Improvement ProgramsPeer network of over 4700 healthcare providers and other healthcare professionalsRisk Management/Legal ConsultationBringing together a team of experienced professionals is the first step toward increasing an Emergency Department's effectiveness. To do this, EmCare recruits a Medical Director who is well-suited to a client hospital's culture and community. The Medical Director acts as the on-site CEO for the contract, interfacing with the medical staff and handling the day-to-day aspects of the practice.EmCare assigns an ED nurse consultant who works with the ED Nurse Manager and Medical Director to identify opportunities for improvement in the ED. Through studies and analyses, they benchmark current levels of performance and identify where efficiencies can be made, while improving the quality of patient care. Having a dedicated RN assigned to each hospital differentiates EmCare among other ED practice management groups. EmCare recognizes the importance of the synergy created between the physicians and nursing staff and actively involves both groups to improve patient care and increase customer satisfaction.Lastly, a business professional works with the client hospital to ensure the department is running in a fiscally sound manner and to coordinate other services that may be needed. This team of experienced professionals monitors and evaluates how the department is running, identifies the tools and expertise necessary to improve the department's effectiveness, implements the appropriate integrated service solutions, then manages and continues to monitor the overall effectiveness of the program. Increased productivity and efficiencies typically lead to increased patient satisfaction.Regional practice support combines the autonomy and familiarity of a local physician group with the support resources of a much larger organization. Regional market presence is key in being able to deliver a higher level of support to a practice. By adopting a decentralized strategy, EmCare brings regional management teams, clinical oversight and proven systems closer to the hospital clients.
