Abstract


New Hampshire's ED high utilizer surveillance pilot is a novel approach to target patients with high healthcare utilization, and monitor their treatment improvement with the added benefit of reducing medical health costs over time.

Not only is this approach manageable but scalable with respect to available resources.
