In a study published today in the December issue of Health Affairs, Jesse Pines, M.D., director of the Office of Clinical Practice Innovation at the George Washington University (GW), and co-authors describe strategies to contain acute care costs without sacrificing quality.
"We are in a time of revolutionary change in medicine in this country with great focus on how the health care system can deliver greater value, by reducing costs and enhancing quality," said Pines, who is also a professor of emergency medicine at the GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences and a professor of health policy at the GW School of Public Health and Health Services.
Pines will present his paper at a Health Affairs forum on Dec. 4 at the National Press Club. Click here to register for the event.

Jesse Pines, M.D., director of the Office of Clinical Practice Innovation and professor of emergency medicine and health policy at the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences, was recently published in the journal Health Affairs for his study titled "Strategies for Integrating Cost-consciousness Into Acute Care Should Focus on Rewarding High-value Care."

"For people who think about diversion as a solution, this debunks that myth," Dr. Jesse Pines, director of the Center for Health Care Quality at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., told Reuters Health.
Diversion can actually be harmful to patients in critical condition or those who are taken to a hospital that doesn't have their medical records, according to Pines. Previous studies have linked ambulance diversion to more heart attack deaths, for example.
"When you're having a heart attack, you don't want to wait," Pines said.
A quarter of the emergency rooms open 20 years ago are now closed, and people who visit the ER are sicker, older and tend to stay longer than they did two decades ago - making crowding a growing problem, Pines pointed out.
Crowded ERs mean long wait times for patients who may be critically ill, and that more people leave before being treated out of frustration.
As the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act takes effect, a surge in the number of insured people will likely mean a spike in ER visits, making crowding even worse, Pines said.
"It's not good care for patients to be sitting in an emergency department for hours to days instead of being taken to the inpatient units," Burke said.
This study and others suggest the solution is not to let fewer patients into the hospital by controlling when and where ambulances can go, but to get patients released or moved to other areas of the hospital more quickly, she said.
"The way to do it is to have a better-run emergency department," Pines said.
Pines and Burke agreed that organizational measures like these within hospitals are the key to solving overcrowding.
