Our Mission

Admin EM’s mission is to teach the world about emergency medicine and support those who practice it. Named for the administration of emergency medicine, Admin EM provides resources in multiple categories:

Administrative Support: We use local and national data as a tool to inform others about the practice of emergency medicine. We also utilize it to assist departments with their performance.

  • Analytics – national data and individual department performance.
  • ED Administration – articles highlighting common pitfalls in ED administration.
  • Patient Flow- articles identifying opportunities for improving patient flow.

Clinical Support: We know the challenges of emergency medicine, and provide resources to improve patient care.

  • Point Of Care – a bedside clinical reference for emergency providers. 
  • Case Files – interesting teaching cases. 
  • Deep Dive – deeper explanations and research into specific clinical topics.
