The Southwest Region of Idaho has some of the highest emergency department (ED) utilization rates in the state’s focus area. We are convening to discuss strategies to reduce unnecessary visits.
- Notification letters for Primary care clinics: We heard from our primary care clinics that they needed a way to communicate with high utilizers.
- ED-Behavioral Health referrals: We are developing a pilot to refer high utilizers to behavioral health providers. We believe that this will reduce ED utilization in the target population.
