Emergency Department Use

Every year thousands of Pueblo County residents experience an avoidable hospital readmission or visit the emergency department when an alternate source of care was available. Avoidable readmissions and ED visits are costly to the health care system and can negatively impact patient outcomes. PTAC works with health care providers in the county to support initiatives aimed at coordinating care to avoid hospital readmissions and keep Pueblo County residents healthy. Similarly, PTAC works with stakeholders across the community to reduce avoidable Emergency Department visits and encourage Pueblo County residents to seek less costly outpatient options when appropriate.
