Study Shows Care Management for Low-Income Adults Reduces Inappropriate ED Utilization

First few Article Sentences

Published in February 2011 in Medical Care, a recent study found that care management for low-income adults reduced inappropriate emergency department (ED) utilization.

The study examined the impact of a care management program implemented for frequent users of hospital services at Kern Medical Center (KMC), a public safety net hospital situated in the third largest county in California. Provided under contract by COPE Health Solutions using their Care Transitions & CoordinationSM model, the care management program was designed to be a low-cost intervention to provide patients with the tools and supportive services that enable them to take a more active role in their care.
