The Policy Lab for Acute Care and Emergencies (PLACE)TM

We believe that to be patient-centered, a health delivery system must deliver the right care in the right place at the right time, for the right cost.

We are committed to performing rigorous, translational research that can influence health policy and health care delivery on a practical level.

The PLACETM research in emergency medicine and other acute care services is critically needed in order to link policy decisions about emergency care provision to empirical evidence.

Current case studies provide a sense of the impact of this research.
