    • Abstract:
      The article reports on a program launched by Christian Hospital in Saint Louis, Missouri, to address the overutilization of its emergency department. The hospital's team has been working with the 911 dispatcher to identify patients who needed something other than emergency care services. The program urged patients to use community resources that already existed and were funded.
