A study by Murphy et al. (2017) tested the outcomes of a multidisciplinary care coordination program with the mission to reduce unneeded ED visits while ensuring that patients get the care they need in the appropriate setting. At the heart of the program was an individualized care plan for each participant developed jointly by a team of the patient's health care providers. The team included the patient's primary care physician, emergency physicians and nurses, and mental health and substance-use-disorder professionals, among others.
Additionally, the program used a Web-based information exchange system capable of sharing relevant patient information with ED care providers and others, such as case managers and primary care providers, in real time, whenever an enrolled patient registered at an ED using the system. Patients enrolled in the program showed a 34% reduction in ED visits associated with an 80% decrease in the odds of receiving an
opioid prescription comparative to the control arm participants of the study.
