Value Based Care

In this era of value-based care, Professional Emergency Medicine Management (PEMM) focuses on throughput and process efficiencies in our emergency departments to reduce wait times, decrease left without treatment (LWOT) metrics, and improve patient experience.

Managing Through the Chaos

In busy emergency departments, there’s no such thing as routine. In the United States, there are roughly 146 million ED visits each year, including 42 million injury-related visits, 13 million visits that require a hospital stay and 2 million that result in a critical care unit stay, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data.[1] Of these millions of visits, nearly 40 percent of ED patients are seen within 15 minutes, and less than 10 percent result in a hospital admission, CDC data shows.

Please Have a Seat in the Waiting Area

Triaged emergency room patients care about two things: Being seen by a provider and finding out what comes next — and both as quickly as possible.
