The Evolving Role of Emergency Departments in the United States by Kristy Gonzalez Morganti( )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The research described in this report was performed to develop a more complete picture of how hospital emergency departments (EDs) contribute to the U.S. health care system, which is currently evolving in response to economic, clinical, and political pressures. Using a mix of quantitative and qualitative methods, it explores the evolving role that EDs and the personnel who staff them play in evaluating and managing complex and high-acuity patients, serving as the key decisionmaker for roughly half of all inpatient hospital admissions, and serving as "the safety net of the safety net" for patients who cannot get care elsewhere. The report also examines the role that EDs may soon play ineither contributing to or helping to control the rising costs of health care
Evaluating the Impact of Prevention and Early Intervention Activities on the Mental Health of California's Population by Katherine Watkins( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2004, California voters passed the Mental Health Services Act, which was intended to transform California's community mental health system from a crisis-driven system to one that included a focus on prevention and wellness. The vision was that prevention and early intervention (PEI) services comprised the first step in a continuum of services designed to identify early symptoms and prevent mental illness from becoming severe and disabling. Twenty percent of the act's funding was dedicated to PEI services. The act identified seven negative outcomes that PEI programs were intended to reduce: suicide, mental health-related incarcerations, school failure, unemployment, prolonged suffering, homelessness, and removal of children from the home. The Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission (MHSOAC) coordinated with the California Mental Health Services Authority (CalMHSA), an independent administrative and fiscal intergovernmental agency, to seek development of a statewide framework for evaluating and monitoring the short- and long-term impact of PEI funding on the population. CalMHSA selected the RAND Corporation to develop a framework for the statewide evaluation. This report describes the approach, the data sources, and the frameworks developed: an overall approach framework and outcome-specific frameworks
Implementing a resource-based relative value scale fee schedule for physician services : an assessment of policy options for the California workers' compensation program by Barbara O Wynn( )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A RAND study used 2011 medical data to examine the impact of implementing a resource-based relative value scale to pay for physician and other practitioner services under the California workers; compensation system. Current allowances under the workers; compensation fee schedule are approximately 116 percent of Medicare-allowed amounts and, by law, will transition to no more than 120 percent of Medicare payment amounts over four years. Using the policies that the California Division of Workers; Compensation proposes to adopt, aggregate allowances are estimated to decrease for four types of service by the end of the transition in 2017: anesthesia ( -19.5 percent), surgery ( -20.1 percent), radiology ( -15.9 percent), and pathology ( -29.0 percent). Aggregate allowances for evaluation and management visits are estimated to increase by 39.5 percent. Allowances for services classified as medicine in the Current Procedural Terminology codebook will increase by 17.3 percent. In the aggregate, across all services, allowances are projected to increase 11.9 percent. Because most specialties furnish different types of services, the impacts by specialty are generally less than the impacts by type of service
