The Emergency Department sits at the nexus of hospital-based care and the outpatient world. It serves as a front door for the hospital, providing over 70% of all hospital admissions.
From the ED’s unique vantage point, it is clear there is an unaddressed “Care Gap” costing the health care system, and all its stakeholders, dearly.
In this white paper, SCP Health’s Enterprise Chief Medical Officer Randy Pilgrim, MD, FACEP, FAAFP, identifies solutions and enumerates the benefits of narrowing and filling the Care Gap including:
- Improved patient outcomes
- Decreased cost and risk
- Increased capacity and optimized resources
- Better performance in value-based models
