We are approaching the home stretch in Trenton.  There are just a few more days in early January before the 2-year session comes to the end and we start a new legislative session where all the bills are introduced and start from scratch.  I will run a full report of all NJ-ACEP monitored bills that were signed into law in January and bills that NJ-ACEP successfully opposed.  Most notably, the bills dealing with Out of Network is, at this point, stalled.  We fully expect this debate to continue into the new legislative session in 2016.  For now, please note the following current actions of interest:

ACEP Education Campaign

ACEP has launched a campaign to educate policymakers, the news media and the public about the value of emergency medicine and that emergency care constitutes less than 2% of all health care spending. To hear some talk about rising health care costs, you’d think it was more like 50%! Because of the cost-cutting environment in Washington and in state legislatures, this campaign is designed to promote the high value of emergency care. The campaign launched with a Health Writers’ Conference in New York, featuring ACEP members from Arizona, Connecticut, New York, Texas, Oregon and Washington, DC, highlighting different aspects of emergency care. In addition, the results of a new poll of ACEP members was released showing increased stress on emergency departments. ACEP spokespersons in 10 top media markets are conducting media interviews to promote the poll results and reinforce the “Just 2%” messages. The campaign will continue with print and radio ads through ACEP’s Leadership & Advocacy Conference this month in Washington.



As we approach another anniversary of those tragic events that occurred on that fateful September morning 16 years ago, some of us might wonder how to best honor the memory of those we lost.  For some, the intimate details of those hours and days are indelibly imprinted in our minds.

NJ-ACEP has created a program designed to honor the memory of those lost in 9/11, and make each one of us safer, more resilient.    NJ-ACEP is proud of this initiative - created by long time NJ-ACEP member, Dr. James Pruden, who was one of the first physicians on the scene that tragic day, and remained on the scene for ten days.  

The goal of SAFE CITIZENS DAY is to commit ourselves to being better citizens by teaching or learning the things that will potentially help us, our families, our friends and our neighbors survive the time of unexpected challenges.   We urge every NJ-ACEP member to reach out to your hospital, your churches, your schools, your businesses and your community - and promote this day to accomplish any number of preparedness training programs.  

We have compiled a lengthy list of ideas, but it is by no means a complete list.  Whatever works for your communities is what you should undertake.  CLICK HERE FOR IDEAS
