EMNet involves 245 medical centers: 204 US and 41 International. Thousands of additional sites have completed EMNet surveys. The network includes 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) Public Health includes diverse topics, but focuses on mental health emergencies such as the ED Safety Assessment & Follow-up Evaluation (ED-SAFE) and large surveys.
Large administrative dataset analyses contribute to all three programs.
All EMNet programs are based at the EMNet Coordinating Center (ECC) at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. Dr. Carlos Camargo founded all programs, is the EMNet Division Chief, and chairs the EMNet Steering Committee. Ashley Sullivan is the Director of the ECC. Investigators include Kohei Hasegawa, Maggie Samuels-Kalow, Susan Wilcox, and Kori Zachrison. Members of the 2018-20 EMNet Steering Committee are Jeff Caterino, Sunday Clark, Kohei Hasegawa, Robert Freishtat, and Jonathan Mansbach. For an overview in PowerPoint, please click here.
