How a Tennessee hospital cut uninsured ED visits by nearly 70%
from Becker's Hospital Review
A Memphis hospital is seeing uninsured emergency department visits drop under a new model that aims to help chronically ill patients navigate the safety-net system. The model, called ONE Health, has helped coordinate care and connect 224 repeat ED or inpatient hospital users to social services, according to healthcare journalist Bara Vaida, whose article was published by Health Affairs. Under the nurse-led model, Regional Health directs high-ED users to benefits through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and subsidized housing through the Department of Housing and Urban Development, among other services.
