ER Diversion Project
Goals of the ER Diversion Program (Roadmap to Health):
Access Health works with ER Staff at Aultman Hospital to enure that frequent, non-acute users are connected to health insurance, a primary care provider and a Community Health Worker. We coordinate care of that patient with providers, specialists and social service agencies. Our goal is to help patients own their health by teaching them about conditions and what their “health” numbers mean, along with equpping them with the questions they need to ask doctors before leaving an appointment. This initiative is funded by United Way of Greater Stark County.
