2023 ACEP E-QUAL Honor Roll Recognizes Excellence in Substance Use Disorder and Stroke Care

WASHINGTON, D.C.—The American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) is pleased to honor emergency departments named to this year’s Emergency Quality Network (E-QUAL) Honor Roll for notable achievement in emergency care for stroke or opioid/alcohol use disorder treatment. 

“Emergency physicians are leading stroke treatment innovation and making lifesaving improvements to the way substance use disorders are treated and prevented," said Aisha Terry, MD, FACEP, president of ACEP. "ACEPs E-QUAL Honor Roll recognizes emergency departments across the country that are enhancing and expanding the ways that we approach these vital areas of emergency care."

2023 E-QUAL Honor Roll awardees demonstrate excellence in opioid and alcohol metrics that include treatment prescribed at discharge, treatment administered in the emergency department, and take-home naloxone offered or prescribed.

In stroke care, emergency physicians are routinely responsible for key components of initial assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and critical resource decisions for patients with a possible stroke. E-QUAL Honor Roll awardees for stroke care are recognized for arrival to computed tomography (CT) scan time for hemorrhagic or ischemic stroke patients, and door-to-needle time for ischemic stroke patients. 

More than 1,400 EDs and over 32,500 emergency medical providers have participated in E-QUAL collaboratives to date. Together, E-QUAL participants can claim:

  • $55 million saved through avoidable imaging and hospitalization
  • 23% increase in prescribing alternatives to opioids
  • 35% decrease in opioids administered in the emergency department
