The Emergency Medicine Network (EMNet)’s mission is to advance public health objectives through diverse projects in emergency care, particularly multicenter clinical research.
EMNet involves 247 medical centers and three programs. Large administrative dataset analyses contribute to all three programs.
The major Multicenter Airway Research Collaboration (MARC) research activities at this time are MARC-35 and MARC-43, two multicenter cohorts on infants. The cohorts will examine which children develop recurrent wheezing and asthma, and the relation of airway microbiome to risk of childhood asthma.
Another major project is MARC-42, an analysis of large administrative datasets to investigate readmissions within 30 days after COPD-related hospitalization.
