WHY CRUCIAL CARE?
A Crucial Care facility handles both low acuity (urgent care) and high acuity (ER-level) cases by providing high quality care that can yield lower ER visits, lower hospital admissions and create savings (up to $1,200 for every patient encounter). Savings yield practical elimination of Observation Cases, and a significant reduction in hospital admissions while providing A.C.E.P. Standards of Care (American College of Emergency Physicians).
Like an ER, patients have access to an Emergency Specialist in a Crucial Care facility, who can determine if a case is major (high acuity) or not. Cases do not need to be “bounced” to the ER, and both Minor and Major cases are handled on site. Patients get the care they need rapidly.
Real-time Managed Care
When appropriate, your patients will be referred to specialists or hospitals that are in-network based on the plan they are enrolled in. Downstream care is guided to high quality and efficient providers.
Low Visit Cost
A visit to Crucial Care is typically 2 to 3 times less expensive than the same care provided in a hospital-based ER.
Low Hospitalization Rate
Coordinated Care, combined with leading edge Emergency Medicine, can reduce cost, hospital use and hospital-acquired risks.
WHAT IS CRUCIAL CARE?
Crucial Care is a new concept in healthcare. It’s not an emergency room, not a walk-in clinic, not an urgent care clinic. It’s more.
Crucial Care handles serious medical cases like an ER without the overhead or wait. Board Certified Emergency Medicine Physicians provide care to meet or exceed American College of Emergency Physicians Standards (Evidence-Based Clinical Guidelines) outside of the traditional hospital-based ER environment. The hyper-efficient delivery of Emergency Medicine Speciality Services combined with outpatient facility efficiently provides high quality care that can yield lower ER visits, lower hospital admissions and create savings (up to $1,200 for every patient encounter).
