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.

Hear from two healthcare organizations on the most effective strategies they’ve implemented to address non-emergent ED use by participating in the audio conference: “Developing Effective Strategies to Reduce Non-Emergent Emergency Department Use.”

The program is scheduled for:
Tuesday, September 25, 2007 at 1:30 p.m. Eastern time.

  • 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

You will get details on:

  • 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;
