There are a lot of things Las Vegas is known for – gambling, over-the-top entertainment, and world-class dining. Now there’s one more thing to add to that list: ACEP 2016 – the leading event for emergency medicine. In a few days, thousands of emergency medical professionals from around the globe will gather for ACEP16, an immersive experience that goes beyond what typical medical conferences offer. So what makes ACEP16 so important?
ACEP16 is the largest Emergency Medicine focused conference in the US that brings together education, networking, policy development, and new medical technologies to one convenient location. Because point-of-care ultrasound plays such a pivotal role for emergency medicine clinicians, we’ll be at ACEP too, meeting with physicians, nurse practitioners, medical directors, paramedics, and other professionals who are looking for ways to build on their specialty.
If you’re headed to ACEP16, here’s a list of the Top Five Tips and Trends to look for:
Check out the interactive, award-winning, educational, InnovateED. InnovateED combines the latest medical device technologies with hands-on, true-to-life trauma scenarios that are played out in real-time by top emergency physicians. See the newest SonoSite point-of-care ultrasound systems including, SII, iViz, and X-Porte.
2. Connectivity: Connecting, Sharing, and Collaborating
We understand one of the biggest frustrations emergency clinicians face is the timely transfer of patient information from the ultrasound system. At ACEP16, you’ll have the opportunity to explore an array of connectivity solutions for securely integrating data into your organization. Focusing on connecting, sharing, and collaborating, we’ll be demonstrating how SonoSite connectivity solutions bring seamless, data sharing to your health system for more efficient consulting, credentialing, and billing.
