Webinar 1: Emergency Room Diversion

BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York presents, Emergency Room Diversion. As DSRIP and other delivery reform efforts push health systems and physicians to reduce avoidable admissions, this webinar provides information on two Emergency Room Diversion partners in Western New York. The program allows BlueCross BlueShield members requiring hospitalization to be diverted to these facilities for services that include fractures, wound care, infectious disease/IV antibiotics or care for a number of other chronic and debilitating conditions.
