Vituity Webinar’s Focus: Psychiatric Care in EDs

This year, over four million Americans with behavioral health conditions — psychiatric, substance-related, or both — will enter an emergency department that is not prepared to treat them. However, when EDs are empowered to properly evaluate and treat behavioral health patients, hospitals see enhanced efficiencies and improved quality of care for all ED patients.

In this exclusive Vituity webinar for HASC and Hospital Council — Northern & Central California members, the success of an integrated approach to acute behavioral health care at a Dignity Health location in San Bernardino will be explored.

Join this webinar and learn how hospitals and health systems can:

  • Improve clinical quality, profitability, and levels of community trust.
  • Achieve higher ED throughput and better care for all, with fewer unnecessary behavioral patient admissions.
  • Increase patient experience scores and enhance provider satisfaction.

Please enroll in this informative HASC and Hospital Council — Northern & Central California webinar featuring speakers from our endorsed business partner Vituity and association member Dignity.
