The Emergency Medicine Network (EMNet) involves 247 medical centers and three programs. Large administrative dataset analyses contribute to all three programs.
1) Multicenter Airway Research Collaboration (MARC) is an international research network focusing on respiratory/allergy emergencies such as asthma, COPD, anaphylaxis, bronchiolitis, and other similar disorders.
2) Health Services Research (HSR) focuses on access to emergency care, quality of emergency care, and patient outcomes. This includes the National ED Inventories (NEDI) along with patient safety and workforce studies.
3) Social Emergency Medicine (Social EM) focuses on identifying and addressing adverse social determinants of health and developing interventions to reduce disparities in emergency care.
All EMNet programs are based at the EMNet Coordinating Center (ECC) at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. Professor Carlos Camargo founded all programs, is the EMNet Division Chief, and chairs the EMNet Scientific Advisory Board. Ashley Sullivan is the Director of the ECC. Investigators include Rebecca Cash, Kohei Hasegawa, Rama Salhi, Maggie Samuels-Kalow, Kristen Shanahan, Kori Zachrison, and Zhaozhong Zhu. Members of the 2020-2022 EMNet Scientific Advisory Board are Jeff Caterino, Elizabeth Goldberg, Robert Freishtat, Jonathan Mansbach, and Danielle McCarthy.
