    Key Points
    Being an emergency physician provides a unique perspective on governing Our understanding of the needs of underserved and underinsured populations can influence policy decisions Patient health involves more than just the care we provide in the emergency department Social determinants of health, drug pricing, insurance status, and many other factors affect our patients’ health To truly improve our patients’ health, students, residents, and young physicians must learn the language of advocacy by getting involved at every level of policy creation: from hospital administration to local, state, and federal government Emergency physicians are better equipped than other specialties to advocate for our patients and our profession because of our experience standing up for our patients to guarantee they get the care they need every single shift Government can have a role in incentivizing technology and alternative payment models to improve healthcare access and affordability References
