Hospitals look for ways to ground ER 'frequent fliers'
from The Daytona Beach News-Journal
Hospitals are working to ground what they call ER frequent fliers — patients with chronic conditions who could be channeled into better forms of care at a lower cost. Hospitals are building primary care clinics, hiring health coaches to guide patients through the healthcare system and opening specialized clinics to provide follow-up care. The goal is to get patients taking their medication as prescribed, exercising, eating well and following their doctors' advice.
