Most emergency department 'super-frequent users' have a substance abuse addiction
Date:5/17/2014

ibing guidelines for narcotics in their ED impacted the level of patients seeking pain-relief narcotics.

In 2004, Henry Ford created the Community Resources for Emergency Department Overuse (CREDO) to more effectively manage the increased frequent users in the ED with individual care plans.

After reviewing and collecting data from each of the patients' electronic medical record, researchers found that CREDO had a significant impact. Before CREDO was initiated, the super-frequent users sought care in the ED 32.4 times a year.

Since then, rate of super-frequent users who sought pain-relief narcotics in Henry Ford's ED dropped to 13.8 visits a year from 32.5. For other super-frequent users, their visits dropped to 11.6 visits a year from 33.

"Emergency Departments that implement case management initiatives can make meaningful progress in addressing their frequent-user patient population," Dr. Peltzer-Jones says. "As our study showed the number of frequent users visiting the ED for narcotics is alarming. A successful remedy to curtailing that problem is implementing case management strategies such as ours. However, if Emergency Departments don't have the resources to create a program, instituting narcotic prescribing guidelines may lead to decreased visits by frequent users."
