A Message from the President

Dr. Orlee Panitch, MD, FACEP

Lauren Myers 0 898

I am incredibly honored for the privilege of being the President of Maryland ACEP.  It is a privilege to serve with some many fine professionals at both the State and National Levels.

I want to take a moment to again recognize Drew White for his two years as President.  Drew served during the tumultuous period when pressures on hospitals to comply with our State’s Medicare demonstration projects created all sorts of unintended consequences, particularly in the area of EMS diversion time and throughput.   With Drew’s leadership, Maryland ACEP took a central role in helping the state create new measures of throughput to help our EDs move patients more efficiently.   Drew oversaw a strategic planning process that has aligned us to move forward in this constantly changing world.   We saw a revitalization of the practice management committee, and multiple behavioral health initiatives. 

Let’s discuss our strategic plan.  With the assistance of a strategic planner, we have been able to hone down our initiatives to the following three:

  • Improve Patient Care Statewide through Advocacy
  • Promote an Accurate Understanding of the Value and Practice of Emergency Medicine in Maryland
  • Enhance Membership Value and Engagement.
