Urgent Matters Annual Meeting


Urgent Matters hosts an annual meeting at ACEP to bring together leaders and innovators in emergency medicine. We are proud to announce the 2018 Urgent Matters Annual Meeting:

2018 UM Conference: Improving the Value of Acute & Emergency Care: Innovations in Senior Emergency Care

This session will highlight new innovations in acute and emergency care with a focus on innovations in seniors (i.e. aged 65 and older), as well as how these fit into new payment models and government programs.  With increasing push to value-based care and increasing quality measurement particularly applied to the Medicare program, innovations in acute and emergency care for seniors are increasingly necessary.  Organizations have started to realize the central role of EDs in value-based care, and how value can be improved in particular for seniors who benefit disproportionately from care provided in the ED. In this session, you’ll be able to learn directly from leaders on the frontlines of senior innovation, gaining an understanding of what’s new, what works, and what doesn’t as well as the government and quality-focused policies that create incentives for organizations to invest in improving acute and emergency care.  


The Urgent Matters Annual Meeting will be on September 30, 2018 from 12:30pm-5:30pm
and will be hosted by the American College of Emergency Physicians Scientific Assembly in San Diego, California at the San Diego Convention Center.
