A recent study by the Institute of Medicine found that ER visits increased from 90.3 million in 1993 to 113.9 million in 2003. Numerous studies have found that a number of these visits are for non-urgent medical care that could be treated in primary care settings. Health plans and disease management companies are seeking to reduce the use of the ER for non-urgent care. Directing non-urgent care to primary care settings can reduce costs, improve the coordination of care for patients and preserve the ER for those who truly need emergency care.
"Non-Urgent Emergency Room Usage: Proven Ways to Redirect Care to Appropriate Settings," an October 18, 2006 audio conference, will highlight strategies by two healthcare organizations on reducing inappropriate ER use.
