NEW YORK CITY HEALTH AND HOSPITALS CORPORATION
Project Title: "ED Care Management Initiative: Preventing Avoidable ED/Inpatient Use"
Geographic Reach: New York
Estimated Funding Amount: $17,916,663
The New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation project will test an Emergency Department Care Management model, which expands and enhances a current successful pilot program. This model utilizes a multi-disciplinary team that will comprehensively assess patients who present in the emergency department for an ambulatory-care sensitive condition (ACSC), create a care plan that would avoid an unnecessary hospitalization, and provide ongoing support after discharge, including medication management, education, and linkages with primary care providers. The program will operate in 6 hospitals.
