The Emergency Department Benchmarking Alliance

Effectively managing an Emergency Department (ED), especially in this time of tremendous service pressure and rapid change, is one of the most challenging jobs in health care today. ED managers across the country tend to share similar problems and interests, and in essence speak a common language which is not understood well by those outside the specialty. One of the best parts of EDBA membership is being connected to others within this world, and being connected with new skill sets and concepts which can help address these specific issues.

There could not be a better time to focus energy on the Emergency Department, at a time when so many citizens are relying on a site of excellent unscheduled health care. 

EDBA has just finished their 2019 Innovations in Emergency Medicine meeting in Nashville, TN. There were 17 posters submitted for the poster session and while they were all great, there was a winner and a runner up. EDBA would like to Congratulate our winner,  Dr. James Learning, Geisinger Holy Spirit Hospital. Dr. Carlos Duarte, Northwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital was our runner up.
