Have you filed your Medicare provider application? If not, better read the fine print.
While infrequently a critical event in the ED, epistaxis is often that little rock in the shoe of an otherwise smooth shift.
This month we continue our look at trends spotted at the ACEP Scientific Assembly held last October.
Another ACEP Scientific Assembly has come and gone. One of my favorite
things to do at this convention is walk the exhibit floor and check out
the new toys and tools. The floor seemed a little barren in comparison to years past – not to mention an overabundance of physician management or recruiting firms – but there were still plenty of interesting ideas
and products out there. We’ll spend the next couple of articles looking
at emerging products and ideas on the technology front. I will
intentionally be avoiding systems technology such as computerized
patient tracking as you really cannot properly review these products
without implementing them in your ED.
Pros: It’s versatile, compact and extremely functional; it’s got it all.
Cons: Slightly pricey for the value and a bit gimmicky.
