EMNet involves 245 medical centers: 204 US and 41 International. Thousands of additional sites have completed EMNet surveys. The network focuses on three areas:
1) Respiratory/allergy emergencies, through the Multicenter Airway Research Collaboration (MARC). MARC is an international research network focusing on asthma, COPD, anaphylaxis, bronchiolitis and other similar disorders.
2) Health services in emergency care, which includes the National ED Inventories (NEDI) along with patient safety and workforce studies.
3) other public health projects, focusing on mental health emergencies and diverse topics. The ED Safety Assessment & Follow-up Evaluation (ED-SAFE), surveys, and analysis of large datasets are the core activities of this program.
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, and Kori Zachrison. Members of the 2017-19 EMNet Steering Committee are Jeff Caterino, Sunday Clark, Kohei Hasegawa, Robert Freishtat, and Jonathan Mansbach. For an overview in PowerPoint, please click here.
