Abstract

Emergency Department visits for nonurgent conditions are very widespread and new strategies to provide timely and appropriate medical care for these patients are required. The "Fondazione IRCCS Ca 'Grande" Hospital in Milan, in collaboration with the local health authorities have evaluated a new case management model in which patients classed as nonurgent at triage are diverted to a "continuity of care" outpatient office within the emergency department. This model, based on the integration of hospital and community-based primary healthcare, was effective and led to a significant reduction in waiting times in the ED and to a more appropriate use of resources.
