Manasquan NJ USA -- August 16, 2007: Emergency department (ED) services are often provided for non-emergent care to individuals who lack the education and/or resources for appropriate primary care. Non-emergent care in the ED is expensive and ineffective for health plans, hospitals and consumers alike. Hospitals and health plans nationwide are developing strategies to reduce the reliance on EDs for non-emergent care.

During Developing Effective Strategies to Reduce Non-Emergent Emergency Department Use, a 90-minute audio conference on September 25, 2007, you'll hear from two healthcare organizations on the most effective strategies they’ve implemented to address non-emergent ED use.

Dr. Jim Glauber, medical director for Neighborhood Health Plan of Massachusetts, Dr. Lakshmi Dhanvanthari, staff vice president and medical director at WellPoint State Sponsored Business, and Dr. Karen Amstutz, regional vice president and medical director at WellPoint State Sponsored Business, will provide details on:

  • Creating teachable moments for non-emergent ED users before, during and after they access the ED inappropriately;
  • Engaging cross-stakeholder groups to develop effective ED utilization management programs;
  • Examining how specific populations and diagnoses influence ED visits and how this information can help shape your program’s initiatives;
  • Analyzing the likelihood that high ED utilizers will persist as high utilizers; and
  • Using member self-care resources to reduce non-emergent ED use.

Who Will Benefit?

CEOs, medical directors, disease management directors, managers and coordinators, health plan executives, care management nurses and business development and strategic planning directors.
