One of the most remarkable facets of Schumacher Clinical Partners’ (SCP) journey with ACEP has been the significant impact we have made together in health care advocacy.
In the last several decades, we’ve advocated on behalf of our providers, our hospitals, and most importantly, our patients, with significant and noteworthy results. As a specialty, we are in a far better place because of ACEP’s effective collaboration with many organizations, including SCP.
In the early years of the College, we worked hard to build the specialty, focusing on a simple but effective goal of delivering a valuable service to patients, medical staffs, and hospitals, while growing and refining a new specialty. Over time, we gathered steam and now we have a very resonant, collective voice to advocate for patient protections, provider protections, and health care measures that make the whole system work better.
ACEP has assembled and cultured a chorus of voices over the last 50 years that tirelessly proposes and supports legislation, regulation, and payer policies that support high-quality care, a beneficial environment for emergency physicians, and a more efficient system of care. Just one visit to ACEP’s national conferences, including the annual Leadership & Advocacy Conference in Washington, D.C., is evidence enough. We’re big, we’re engaged, and we’re effective.
