The Emergency Medicine Action Fund will greatly expand our efforts to influence federal regulatory issues in ways that differ from NEMPAC. Both NEMPAC and the Emergency Medicine Action Fund need sustained contributions to represent the interests of emergency medicine effectively.
“To practice in the world we wish for, we need to affect not only the legislative process but also the resulting regulations,” said Dr. Alex Rosenau, Secretary-Treasurer of the ACEP Board of Directors. “With health care reform, accountable care organizations, value-based purchasing, and other issues looming, it will take a wide vision, strong values, real collaboration and, frankly, the money to realistically influence a regulatory change that favors emergency medicine,” he added.
