16 Closing Thoughts: Operations Its The Hospital, Stupid!! Rapid Cycle Change: Rapid Is Key Early Results More Important Than Consensus Communications are critical Data Systems Lag But its doable Executive Management Buy-In Is Key Collaboration?

Are we just building bigger reservoirs? And what are we putting in them? Changing EMTALA Is Not the Answer Barring the Door, or Triaging Out, Is Not the Answer Either What are the Implications for Surge Capacity? Maybe We Need to Rethink the Role of the ED as Provider of Last Resort The Safety Net CAN Improve Its Performance With minimal external resources And that goes for Academic Health Centers as well
