ER Avoidance Program Saves $706K

Case Study: ER Avoidance Outreach Reduces Unwarranted Utilization, Saves $706K

A large commercial health plan expanded its partnership with Carenet Healthcare Services to further reduce non-urgent ER visits and associated costs.

For two years, Carenet had been conducting ER avoidance outreach to the plan’s members after their third non-urgent ER visit in a year. While the program was highly successful, Carenet and the plan identified an area of refinement — intervention timing and criteria — that would result in greater savings.
