Traditional approaches to assessing the health of populations focus on the use of primary care and the delivery of care through patient-centered homes, managed care resources, and accountable care organizations. The use of emergency departments (EDs) has largely not been given consideration in these models. Our study aimed to determine the contribution of EDs to the health care received by Americans between 1996 and 2010 and to compare it with the contribution of outpatient and inpatient…

The development and validation of a resource consumption score of an emergency department consultation

More than half of the variation in total ED resource consumption can be predicted by the suggested model in the internal validation, and can be used to calculate benchmarks of an ED and provides leaders in emergency care with a tool that allows them to evaluate resource decisions and to estimate effects of organizational changes.

What determines diagnostic resource consumption in emergency medicine: patients, physicians or context?

Dostic resource consumption in the ED is heavily affected by physicians’ situational confidence, and whether the relative proportion of characteristics of the patient, the physician and the context that contribute to ED resource consumption is determined.

The research described in this article was performed to develop a more complete picture of how hospital emergency departments (EDs) contribute to the U.S. health care system, which is currently

Primary care and public emergency department overcrowding.

Public emergency departments could refer large numbers of patients to appointments at primary care facilities but this alternative would be viable only if the availability and coordination of primary care services were enhanced for low-income populations.

The relevance of continuity of care: a solution for the chaos in the emergency services.

There is a need to optimize the health care of patients who have non-urgent problems but still seek the emergency department through strategies at the primary health care level-and where a comprehensive approach with an emphasis on prevention would stimulate better quality of care at a lower cost.

The limited evidence suggests that younger age, convenience of the ED compared with alternatives, referral to the ED by a physician, and negative perceptions about alternatives such as primary care providers all play a role in driving nonurgent ED use.
