Emergency departments inside the urban core of America’s biggest cities face an enormous challenge. The acute healthcare “grids” are operating in a state of resource constraint, while the flow of patients keeps increasing. The physicians and clinical teams in the ED must deal with the supply and demand mismatch every day.

In this episode, Greg Johnsen sat down with Scott Campbell, Attending Emergency Physician at Kaiser San Francisco, and President of San Francisco Emergency Physicians Association, to discuss some of the issues that exist at the intersection of public policy and public health.

Scott also shares his opinions on the role of technology when it comes to getting the right person to the right bed with the right care every time — something that cannot be solved with just a bricks and mortar solution.
