Care collaboration tech helps hospital reduce unnecessary psychiatric ED visits by 78%

From Healthcare IT News:

“By contacting the right case manager when a behavioral health patient presents at the ED, coordinating with case managers, and transitioning the patient to appropriate care in an outpatient setting, we’ve been able to reduce the number of visits from these patients in the ED,” Patel reported.

The program still is growing and taking on new use-cases, but the results the hospital has seen so far are promising.
