from University of Iowa via ScienceDaily

Patients in small towns can save thousands of dollars in health care costs if their local rural hospital is part of a tele-emergency room network, according to a new study from the University of Iowa. Patients can save about $5,600 a year in transportation and other related expenses by staying in their local hospital and avoiding transfer to a larger hospital elsewhere, the study found. Those savings also included expenses such as missed time at work, lodging and other personal expenses of accompanying friends or family members. more
