8th Annual

IES Quality Summit

Virtual Event

Medicolegal Aspects of Emergency Medicine

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

The IES Quality Summit is held annually to share evidence-based practices that produce better quality outcomes and enhance the value that Emergency Medicine brings to overall healthcare delivery. Celebrating our 8th consecutive year, this year’s Summit will focus on Medicolegal Aspects of Emergency Medicine. We are pleased to welcome legal experts to discuss how to identify triage and patient care pitfalls, review systems to reduce errors, and the Stark Law and the Anti-Kickback Statutes.

The keynote address will feature Dighton C. Packard, MD, FACEP. With more than 40 years of experience in Emergency Medicine, Dr. Packard understands all healthcare stakeholders’ needs, from the C-Suite executives, from the frontline providers to the patients. Dr. Packard will discuss malpractice from his unique perspective and provide insight on leadership during the pandemic.

He is the past Chairman of the Department of Emergency Medicine at Baylor University Medical Center (BUMC) in Dallas, Texas, and currently serves as Chairman of the BUMC Board of Directors. He received his Bachelor of Science from Baylor University at Waco, Texas, and his medical degree from the University of Texas Medical School at San Antonio and is a current diplomat of the American Board of Emergency Medicine.

In addition to the educational lectures, the Summit will also feature a Quality Poster Contest. Each poster will highlight process improvement and quality program initiatives that demonstrate the tremendous value that Emergency Medicine brings to the overall delivery of healthcare.

The IES Quality Summit is open to providers, hospital administrators, and key stakeholders dedicated to enhancing healthcare delivery through Emergency Medicine. Providers will acquire tools and resources to enhance their practice through continuing medical education (CME) and continuing education (CE) credits that will be offered.
