Some 38 percent of healthcare organizations indicated that utilization of healthcare services has increased at their facility as a result of expanded health insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act. Nearly 86 percent of healthcare organizations have a program to reduce avoidable healthcare utilization, according to the new survey on Reducing Avoidable Healthcare Utilization Survey by the Healthcare Intelligence Network (HIN). The majority of healthcare organizations focus their efforts on reducing avoidable hospitalizations, with 78 percent of healthcare organizations reporting they have a program aimed at this task.
