Forget about touting short emergency department wait times. Reducing volumes of non-emergent patients in the ED is a higher-value pursuit.

Provocative article! Healthcare seems to have its feet in different worlds [INVALID] one foot in the "old" way of driving revenue (fee for service) and the other foot in the "new" way of being reimbursed based on keeping patients well and out of the hospital (and ER). Thanks for the article. Thoroughly enjoyed.
