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 2017 Urgent Matters Annual Meeting:

2017 UM Conference: Improving the Value of Acute & Emergency Care: Frontline Innovation

This session will highlight new innovations in acute and emergency care, as well as how these fit into new payment models and government programs.  With increasing push to value-based care and increasing quality measurement, innovations in acute and emergency care are increasingly necessary and organizations have started to realize the central role of EDs in value-based care. This includes several models such telemedicine and geriatric emergency departments, and other models that improve care within the ED. The development of these models has primarily been led by emergency physicians. In this session, you’ll be able to learn directly from leaders on the frontlines of 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 October 28, 2017 from 12:30pm-5:30pm
and will be hosted by the American College of Emergency Physicians Scientific Assembly in Washington D.C. at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.
