Manasquan NJ USA -- July 14, 2008: Contributing to the growing concern over unnecessary emergency room visits and the strain on emergency department resources is the number of patients with behavioral health needs seen in the ED. Treating these patients in non-emergent primary care and behavioral health settings would alleviate some of the strain on emergency departments and provide appropriate treatment for behavioral health patients.

During Emergency Department Diversion Through Behavioral Health Linkages, a 90-minute webinar on July 30, 2008, you’ll hear from two healthcare organizations who have implemented programs to divert ED visits related to behavioral health issues to appropriate venues of care.

Joe Eppling, assistant vice president of post acute and behavioral health services at East Jefferson General Hospital and Julie Szempruen, associate vice president for the Midtown Mental Health Center, Wishard Health Services will describe their organizations' strategies for serving the needs of the behavioral health patient in the emergency room, including:

  • Complying with EMTALA requirements;
  • Creating linkages with behavioral health providers to provide care in appropriate settings;
  • Triaging for behavioral health needs in the emergency department; and
  • Developing patient education programs on appropriate emergency department use.

The conference lasts approximately 90 minutes, including a question and answer session. Get your questions answered in real-time on the strategies that East Jefferson General Hospital and Wishard Health Services are using!

Who Will Benefit?

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