The emergency department (ED) is a busy healthcare setting that sees a wide array of varying acuity patients with a variety of chief complaints. This Special Issue of Healthcare will focus on innovations in the ED, including, but not limited to: technology in the ED, innovative strategies to improve patient flow in an overburdened healthcare system, public health initiatives in/from the ED, implementation of new protocols/procedures/teams to improve patient-centered outcomes, development of innovative tools/resources, interprofessional team development and/or collaboration, etc. We will mainly feature original research, including short reports, reviews, and clinical studies, but will also welcome case reports, descriptive/how-to, and commentary submissions for consideration.
