Make Insourcing Better with Support for Your Physicians

Hospital-employed physicians often face challenges in improving throughput, HCAHPS scores and other metrics. Inefficiencies in process and miscommunication, especially between emergency and hospital medicine physicians, may be causing excessive emergency department (ED) boarding and wait times. If improving metrics and efficiencies are a priority for your hospital and its employed physician practices, EmCare’s management services agreement (MSA) offers a solution that supports your physicians in achieving success.

Resources for Your Emergency Medicine Physicians

With emergency medicine in the midst of unprecedented change including its new role in population health serving as a bridge to appropriate services and considerations for ED CAHPS having access to resources, expertise and support can be a welcome relief for your emergency department’s hospital employed physicians or your local physician group practice.

EmCare can provide your physicians with an extensive array of services covering every aspect of emergency medicine practice management. Through the MSA, we offer support for clinical quality initiatives, incentive management including data collection, compensation modeling and dashboard reporting and other areas of focus including throughput, satisfaction, care management, communication and quality. We also offer extensive training, mentoring and leadership development programs.
